Eric Shamy-Smith


QC, Canada




Eric wants to live in a world where everyone knows basic first response, all cars have a fully stocked medical kit, and safety and fun in the outdoors go hand-in-hand.
After recertifying his Wilderness First Response (WFR) for the zillionth time, Eric became a WMA instructor so that he could combine his passions of education, medicine, and the great outdoors. He is also a bilingual white-water and flat-water canoeing instructor through the Fédération Québécoise du canot et du kayak (FQCK), and has worked as a professional canoe guide in Northern Ontario, Manitoba, and Québec.
Eric also holds a Masters in Nursing (MScN) from McGill University, and when he’s not working as a medical professional, he can be found on the water canoeing the lakes and rivers of Quebec, or playing board games with family and friends.
