Chris Mayne


Chris is an avid canoeist and has enjoyed paddling in the Wolf Lake area for years. Never leaving home without his camera, or returning early from a canoe trip if he runs out of batteries or in the old days film, he enjoys recording the scenes of the outdoors of North Eastern Ontario. As co-editor of the book Northern Shores with good friend Paul Chivers, a Kiwanis fundraising project in support of the One Kid’s Place Children’s Treatment Centre, many of his images have already been seen by other canoeing enthusiasts around Ontario. As founding Chair of the Friends of La Vase Portages in North Bay, he also appreciate the importance of protecting and maintaining the historical canoe routes to be enjoyed in the future.
