Early History

Canoe Cove Manufacturing (CCM) actually dates back to 1936 where they were building boats at Canoe Cove Marina under the Canoe Cove Marina Ltd name. In 1958 the late Don Matheson became involved and took the company to a higher level. In 1976 the boat building division of Canoe Cove Marina split off and became Canoe Cove Manufacturing Ltd., which is still in operation today.
