The Scottish Canoe Association (Comann Curach na h-Alba in Scots Gaelic) is the governing body for canoeing and kayaking in Scotland.

It covers all branches of the sport from recreational activities to whitewater racing, slalom racing and wildwater racing; flatwater sprint racing and marathon racing; canoe sailing; canoe polo; surf kayaking and canoeing; and extreme racing (including the international event on the Glen Nevis in Lochaber).

It was founded in 1939 by four canoe clubs, the Canoe Section of the Camping Club, Clyde Canoe Club, Forth Canoe Club (1934) and Scottish Youth hostels Canoe Club. The body now has approximately 3,000 individual members, and 90 affiliated clubs and associate organisations.
