Since 2006, the Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour has been showcasing the very best paddling films. The World Tour screens in more than 120 cities around the world. It inspires people to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, push extremes, embrace the paddling lifestyle and appreciate the wild places. The RPFF puts people in touch with and connects people with Mother Earth. It is for this reason that PADDLE became associated with RPFF.

PADDLE (Paddle Against Diabetes Display Love for Earth) was born from collaborative efforts with SOADI (Southern Ontario Aboriginal Diabetes Initiative). PADDLE is dedicated to support the fight against diabetes in all communities, regardless of culture. This has been from support of the RPFF (proceeds to local hospital diabetes programs) and trip sponsorships, which are dedicated to the local indigenous diabetes programs, such as a trip down the Kattawagami River, with all proceeds going to the Weenabaygo Diabetes Unit in Moose Factory. It is hoped to establish local community PADDLEs similar to bike rides and walks, in which people PADDLE their water craft of any kind.
