The Luste Lecture


The Luste Lecture was conceived as a way to bring the Wilderness Canoe Association and the regular participants of its sister initiative the Wilderness Canoe Symposium closer to the Canadian Canoe Museum in celebration of the remarkable lifetime contribution Dr. George Luste has made to all three organizations.

As a paddler, publisher, bibliophile and founder of the Wilderness Canoe Symposium, George Luste has been a leader in the wilderness canoeing realm for fifty years or more.  

It is in recognition of George's huge contribution to canoeing that members of the WCA came together with donations in his honour to create the Luste Lecture in partnership with the CCM. 

To support this fantastic Lecture series please consider donating a gift in his honour.  

Gifts can be made online through The Canadian Canoe Museum at the following link: or by calling the Museum directly: 1.866.342.2663
