Rowing in BC has long led Canada in terms of diversity and inclusion.
- Born in Alert Bay, BC, 1956 Olympic silver medallist Carl Ogawa was the first Asian-Canadian Olympian/Olympic medallist.
- From the Vancouver Rowing Club’s launch of the first Canadian women’s rowing program in 1971 and the launch of the UBC’s women’s program in 1976, and with ground-breaking BC athletes like Tricia Smith followed by Silken Laumann, Marnie McBean and Kathleen Heddle along with coaches like Al Morrow, Rowing BC has been a key player in balancing the boat for women’s participation in sport. According to Rowing Canada, “Starting in 1977, Canadian women’s crews initiated a series of medal wins unparalleled in the western world.”
- Vancouver Rowing Club programs introduced Deaf Sport athletes to learn-to-row programs in 1979.
- As of 2018, Para rowing is included in all regattas held in BC.
