Casting Call! Outdoor Channel’s New Expedition Competition Series looking for competitors


The Outdoor Channel’s New Expedition Competition Series – The Brigade is combing the continent (Canada and USA) in search of brave men and women to join the ultimate adventure.

The application site is now open and any interested Canoe Kayak BC members are encouraged to apply.

A little about the show:

The Brigade will retrace an epic 2600-mile fur trade route. This historic route links waterways from the coast of Oregon to the icy shores of Hudson Bay – all self-navigated – all self-propelled.

This is an expedition that can’t be tackled alone. THE BRIGADE must work together to survive, battling fierce whitewater, portaging over mountains, hunting and fishing for sustenance. Every team member is crucial to success.

There are no eliminations. This cooperative competition relies on collective strength to hang on against the odds. Those who complete the expedition in the time allotted will share the prize money.

The show needs adventurers:

  • With expedition experience
  • Strong paddling skills
  • Multi-skilled in outdoor abilities
  • Possess willpower, strength and determination
  • Ready to take on an epic cross-continent expedition that has not been attempted in 150 years
