What is the Alpine Club of Canada?
Founded in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1906, the Alpine Club of Canada represents the nation's climbing community. Our network of members and facilities offers education, resources, and encouragement so that you can enjoy climbing and other wilderness activities year round.
Now based in Canmore, Alberta, the ACC protects the history and culture of Canada's alpine environments. The ACC develops and supports mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, and hiking programs. The club also maintains backcountry huts in the nation's most spectacular mountain terrain, and helps to preserve your access to wilderness areas across the country.
The club's affiliation with the Union Internationale des Associations d'Alpinisme (UIAA) allows you to connect with international climbing organizations and share information about world-wide climbing issues.
