MANITOBA ROWING ASSOCIATION & ROWING CANADA AVIRON FEE: Why are you paying a fee to MRA & RCA? What is the benefit to you? The primary benefit to both you and WRC is insurance. Our national body provides us with significant level of liability insurance to protect you and this club in case of accident on water. Our provincial and national sport governing bodies are important partners in our operations.
