Ontario Provincial Police say the body of a 29-year-old canoeist has been found in the waters of Georgian Bay.

Police say divers from the OPP underwater search and rescue unit located and removed the body at around 8 p.m. on Monday.

The man has been identified as Toronto resident Mateusz Janus.

The OPP say Janus and a 36-year-old Toronto man were not carrying any safety equipment when they capsized early Monday while paddling on Georgian Bay in a small canoe.

A nearby kayaker was able to rescue the 36-year-old, who was treated in hospital for hypothermia caused by the cold water.

Police say an autopsy will be conducted in Toronto to determine how Janus died.
