The majority of our docks are conveniently packaged in 8’ x 1’ x 1/2’ boxes. They can easily be transported in cars, vans and trucks. To see how our docks are packaged, please (Click Here To Watch). We have even packed them into floatplanes to get to remote fly-in fishing camps (Click Here To Watch).
CanadaDocks standing docks ALWAYS need to be removed from the water before winter. Ice will damage the legs and hardware of the standing sections. In SOME cases, CanadaDocks floating systems can be left in the water over the winter. This depends on ice movement on your body of water. If there is minimal ice shifting, your dock will be ok in the ice over the winter, just remove the ramp, loosen the chains on the anchors and tie it off to shore. If there a lot of ice shift, you will have to remove it.
Yes, our docks are modular, which allows you to add or reconfigure your dock sections over the years. With our Quick Link design, and additional hinges, attaching your docks together is as simple as linking and securing them together. For more information on Quick Links, (Click Here)

Since 2006, CanadaDocks Inc. has been a leader in creating innovative products, with the only formed aluminum, bolt-together Dock Kit on the market. Our engineers are prototype specialists who have used automotive manufacturing techniques to design a system that boasts maximum strength and durability. By creating a truss out of a single sheet of marine grade aluminum, we can use less material, resulting in a dock section that is light, strong, and eco-friendly.
Whether or not you should install a floating or standing on your waterfront depends on the body of water. For larger lakes, a standing dock will stand up best to rough conditions. Our standing docks have legs that adjust between 1′ – 2′, 2′ – 4′ and 4′ – 8′. If you are on a larger lake where your water depth surpasses 8′ in depth a “hybrid” dock system might be the solution for you. A “hybrid” system is a dock configuration that combines standing and floating section. Floating docks are ideal for locations on smaller lakes, with mucky bottoms and are too deep for dock legs.
YES. We do sell our Dock Kits without decking if requested! You can source your own types of wood and simply secure them to our Aluminum Trusses and Joists using hardware of your choice.
Thruflow decking is made out of a UV resistant material which is designed with a slotted pattern to allow air to flow through and will not heat up in the sun. It also has a 360 degree non slip surface, making it the ideal decking for your entire family, even ones with paws.
Everyone should be able to enjoy their CanadaDocks dock kit. Our vast selection of accessories ensures that everyone from every age and ability can enjoy themselves. Getting in and out of the water is easier with our Access Platform, Railings, and Stairs. Our selection of Solar Lights will ensure high visibility from land and water.
