 I canoed the Noire river in western Quebec near Ottawa back in 1999. It was about 130 miles of river through the wilderness taking 6 days (including one rest day in camp). Lots of rapids. That was my biggest and longest canoe trip.

 I found this video online of the river:


 I highly recommend this river. Here is a description of the river and rapids that I found, but there is a book you can get as well

Shuttle from Black River Inn to km 187 on Noire River.
km 183 swifts CBR
km 173 swifts CBR
P 45 m RL around falls a km 171m 171.5 CI 100m CBR
km 150.5 swifts CBR
km 139 CI 50m CBR
km 136 CI tech 450 m CBR (CII tech in medium to high water)
P 85 m RL km 116 "the Wall"-a CII tech 125m (CI 30m, CI 25 m before portage)
km 113 swifts
km 113.5 "Raides McDonald" CI 200m
P 475 RL "Targie" at km 99 (CII 175m or P 75m to CII section)
P 730 RR "Canyon Staircase" km 101 (160m CII to top of a series of ledges (DNR)150m; P 150m; CII 270m with no clear view)
km 97 CII tech 75m
km 96 Ci 35m either side of island
P From Hell 200m to steep drop (bring 100m of rope) to below falls (CI tech 500m), or walk the P From Hell l1340m to end.
P 425m "Rapides de l'Islet (km 91 CI tech to CII "the Drain 120m) to CI-II 450m)
P 17m "Rapides de l'Ours CIV 60m (DNR) to CII Rocks
km 89 CI tech 30m
60m "Hunt Club Rapids" km 69 CII 120m
km 67 CI 75m
km 65 Sur l'tle Rapid
km 45.5 CI Tech 125m "Double Ferry"
P 80m 50:50 Rapids CII 100m at km 46.6
km 44.5 "Tight Right" CII tech 50m
km 44.5 Manitou (no portage noted)
Rapids CII tech to CIII 200m (no portage noted)
km 44 LO and line Jam Rock (CII tech 40m CII bottom 175m)
km 43 CI tech 200m
km 42 "Boulder Raceway" starts - CII and CI to coulder Alley for the to km 30
Swifts to Black River Inn at km 28
Take out

Portages around most rapids, but not all, including some CII tech's.

Some of the class I's become class II tech's under certain conditions.

All portages relatively easy, with the exception of Mountain Chute. The long portage is "from Hell", and the short portage is no fun either-sideways up hill, and then stringing ropes to get you and gear down a very steep drop. Small put in at base of falls, and above 1km of rapids you can't read in advance.

Hi! From Abitibi Quebec near Matheson Ontario! Reaching out to meet like minded folks. Family of six on 100 acres. Partner in a trapping cabin on the side of a lake too. We have a 2600sq ft garden/ chickens/ rabbits and two dogs. We heat with wood/ have food and water reserves/ just got baofeng ham radios for family and MAG member. We're exchanging caches so we're not a burden to each others families. Our next steps are to update mini van in process/ water berkey water filter/ gas reserve/ generator and buying lots of perennials like more strawberries/ raspberries/ asparagus/ walking onions/ seaberry/ rhubarb/ And the like. I put in an extra 47 8x4 beds last summer so now I got to fill em. I want to start back to eden farming to grow fruit trees.

Hello Protector and welcome to the forum! If you ever decide that you've got a liking for ham radio, you'd be well positioned to set up wire antennas in the lower, 80 and 40m bands that would be perfect for communicating with others within your region. Perhaps another thing to consider adding to your lengthy to do list.
