Membership Cost

The cost of BKC membership is £40 per year but you must have compulsory CANI (Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) insurance. This is currently £10 per year for members of an Affiliated Club. This has been automatically added below. If you already have full CANI membership, you can enter your member number to have this amount deducted. Please ensure your CANI membership is current - we do check every one.

Are you a current CANI Individual Member?
The Canoe Association of Northern Ireland rules state that you must be a current CANI Member or take out affiliated membership when joining Belfast Kayak Club. We will enrol you as an Affiliate Member unless you have Individual Membership.
Northern Ireland Resident?*
CANI Membership is not available to those living in England, Wales or Scotland - residents in these countries should join British Canoeing (for England), Canoe Wales or Scottish Canoe Association. I confirm I do not live in England, Wales or Scotland.


Please read this section carefully before ticking the box at the very bottom to indicate that you have read and understood this information.

1. I acknowledge that canoeing is an extreme sport with a danger of personal injury or death. I am aware of and accept these risks and will be responsible for my own actions and involvement. I can confirm I do not suffer from any disability or medical condition that may render me unfit for strenuous exercise or I am aware of the implications of such exercise and have discussed this with my doctor*. I understand that Belfast Kayak Club cannot be held for any personal injury loss or damage as a result of my participation in any club event except that which is the result of gross negligence and/or willful or wanton misconduct.

2. I declare that I have not at any time, within the United Kingdom and its Dependencies, or in any other country of territory, been found guilty by a court of any offence concerning children or young people under 18 years of age, nor bound over, placed on probation, caution, or discharged conditionally or absolutely in relation to such offences. I understand that I must inform the committee should this position change at any time.

3. I agree to be bound by the Belfast Kayak Club constitution and any other policies formally adopted by the club.

4. I agree to be bound by the rules and regulations of the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland and the British Canoe Union. I accept liability for my share (£1) in the company in the event of liquidation of the Union.

*Should a medical condition exist this will not necessarily preclude you from membership participation but it must be declared to the lead coach at the start of every event you attend. Should you be in any doubt advice should be sought from your Doctor.

Consent to the above Declarations*
Please study the declarations above carefully and ensure that you tick this box to indicate that you understand them and agree to be bound by them.


When you hit submit you will be re-directed to Paypal to make your payment. You do not need a Paypal account as you can simply choose to pay by credit or debit card. Belfast Kayak Club will never see your card details.

You will receive an email confirmation of your Membership Application but your membership will not be active until payment is processed and you are registered on the CANI system.

If you have not already done so, you will need to register for Forum access at Once registered and your payment confirmed, your access level will be upgraded to Member.
