All application forms will be sent by Docusign to all members.  Once you have filled out those forms, you can register with Row Canada by following the instructions below:

Note: This year and onwards all new members, learn to row, and pre-existing rowers as well as coaches and executive members have to register through the Row Canada website in addition to filling out our Burnstown Rowing Club form.

The Process is as follows:

  • Login into Rowing Canada REGISTER/JOIN
  • For rowers choose – JOIN A PROGRAM

For Executive and or Coaches choose – ROLES

  • Choose Province
  • Choose Organization (Burnstown Rowing Club)
  • Choose which category, either learn to row, recreational (this should be rower) or student

Log in or Create an Account. Most previously registered rowers probably have an account at Rowing Canada but assume you don’t.

As you go through the process of making one, the system might say that you already have a registration number (write it down somewhere for next year).

After this, there are a few spots where you are asked to tick a box that you AGREE to waive your concerns, etc. (eventually you will be finished).

Row Canada will let Cari know that you are registered, and THE CLUB will be billed for your Row Canada/Row Ontario fees.

You then pay your fees to Cari by e-transfer at and you are on the water.
