Remembering Allan Jacobs

Long-time WCA member Allan Jacobs recently passed away on June 30, 2021. Allan will be remembered by club members for his role in creating the My Canadian Canoe Routes section of the CCR website. Not only was Allan an avid northern tripper, but he was also an enthusiastic supporter of the Wilderness Canoe Symposium. A consummate scientist, Allan cared deeply about the environment and was civic-minded, always striving for a better and more just society.

Please join us in remembering Allan’s life through his obituary which can be found here and by posting your memories of Allan in the comments below. Allan will be missed by his friends in the Wilderness Canoe Association and beyond.

  1. Allan was always there to patiently answer questions. His Back River summary I dare say will be of use for others (as it was for me) for a long time. Hopefully “they” have got canoes “up there” for him.
