Our Values:

We, as club members, are committed to the following values:

  • Fidelity to our mountain roots and club history.
  • Faithfulness to the intrinsic value of the alpine environment to the human spirit; we believe this is best realized through alpine focused, self propelled recreational pursuits.
  • Commitment to training & safety in mountain pursuits.

The Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) was founded in 1906 and is a not for profit, charitable amateur athletic association with approximately 10,000 members throughout Canada and around the world. Incorporated in 1909 by a legislative act of Alberta known as The Alpine Club of Canada Act, we maintain charitable status in Canada and the United States.

The Alpine Club of Canada is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of nine positions. Board members are elected for a 3-year term with elections staggered such that one third of the board positions are elected each year. There is also a Section Forum comprised of one representative from each of the Club’s 22 sections across Canada.

Under the leadership of the Executive Director, the ACC has a full time staff of 15 at its National Office in Canmore and an additional 10 part time and seasonal staff.

There are 22 regional chapters across the country between Newfoundland, Vancouver Island and Whitehorse. The Rocky Mountain Section, based in the Bow Valley, and the Calgary Section are the largest with almost 1000 members each.

The ACC is Canada’s national mountain organization with a strong foundation of volunteer, professional and corporate support. We offer mountaineering, backcountry skiing and climbing camps year round. The Club also publishes books and journals related to mountain culture, provides support for access and environmental issues and offers financial grants that support a variety of mountaineering-related projects.

The ACC has been operating and maintaining mountain huts for over 75 years and currently operate 24 huts in the backcountry of the Canadian Rockies and Selkirk Mountains, as well as a Clubhouse and hostel in Canmore, Alberta.
