We are doing the Yukon this summer.

There is a lot on myccr.com for routes in Canada. Most Arctic rivers however do have whitewater and most do not have cities or for that matter much settled population.
The Mississippi is not on my list. While it looks flat I have seen whirlpools on it caused by current. Eddies and whirlpools can flip you.
You can certainly do six week routes in Provincial Parks like Wabakimi and Woodland Caribou. For the most part there are portages around any whitewater.
Both however are remote.
