Rose Boating Club was
founded 1884 and enjoyed a propsperous period hosting regattas
in North Montreal. After the war, the club applied in 1920
for CCA membership but was denied due to one of their members
playing professional hockey. The following year, after changing
their name to the St.
Rose Canoe Club, they applied for membership
again and were accepted. (as stated in the Gazette) Ste.
Rose hosted Eastern Division regattas regularly for twelve
years. The club was founded by a group of vacationers from
Montreal and was situated where the Thérèse
Casgrain Manor now stands. Their last year was 1933. A St.
Rose C4 crew were the first men to raise the John W. Black
trophy. In the early 1900s, St. Rose held joint regattas
with the Hiawatha Canoe Club (never
a CCA member club).
