A recent and very thorough article from Paddling Magazine that details the rivers, outfitters, water flow information, and campgrounds:


I've paddled none of the 10. Any comments, additions, subtractions?

It’s always good to learn something new, even when you’re as old as I am: 74 years and counting. Largest vs longest rivers. The Mackenzie is the longest river in Canada, while the St. Lawrence is the largest river in Canada. The latter, though is a very close contest. The St. Lawrence volume is 9,850 cubic metres per second, while the Mackenzie is 9,700 cubic metres per second. No other Canadian river is even close. The Mackenzie, however, is entirely within Canada, which should, at least, give it honourable mention. Note the following link.
