The Welland International Flatwater Centre is a current canoeing and kayaking facility in Welland and was used for the 2013 ICF Junior and U23 Canoe Sprint World Championships and the 2015 Pan American Games. The facility was renovated in 2013, before the U23 championships began.
For the Championships and the Pan American Games improvements to the venue included widening of the canal to bring the venue up to conditions and meet international standards, and also saw the addition of buildings along the course. The facility's improvements cost about $10 million Canadian dollars.
The facility has hosted many competitions in many sports among them canoeing, open water swimming and dragon boat racing. After the games the facility reverted to a public use canal.
The facility is set to host the 2018 Canoe Polo World Championships.
