FORTified is one of several mixed teams in the Fort Langley Canoe Club. This successful team of age 55+ paddlers was formed in the fall of 2008 to compete in the 2009 BC Senior Games in Richmond. After the Senior Games of 2009 the team committed to year-round and twice-a- week training, and went on to win gold four times: in the 2010 Senior Games in Comox, the 2011 Games in Nelson, the 2013 Games in Kamloops and the 2014 Games in Langley. FORTified won silver at the BC 55+ Games (formerly the BC Senior Games) in Burnaby in 2015.
