Re-Union Canal Boats… who we are
Re-Union Canal Boats is a social enterprise based on and around Edinburgh’s Union Canal. We built and launched our first pilot boat in 2004 which was replaced by our widebeam canal boat in June 2008.
Re-Union offer training and support to a wide range of volunteers in crewing (RYA) first aid, hospitality, health and hygiene and a variety of other courses that are identified and driven by the volunteers needs and requests.
We engage meaningfully with canalside communities from Edinburgh Quay to Wester Hailes through a variety of projects including canoe building, supporting the development of a canoe club, orchard planting which is now growing into a healthy eating garden project and co-ordinating community consultations and the Edinburgh Canal Festival.
Re-Union bring people together to develop their skills, learn from one another and realise their potential whilst maintaining and promoting the canal as a remarkable asset for the community.
