Regional sections of the Alpine Club of Canada are its strength. The vast majority of club members belong to a regional club section.  Membership in a section enables members to participate in numerous summer and winter mountaineering, rock climbing, and skiing activities, coordinated by experienced amateur leaders in your local aea. The majority of activities offered by Sections are either free or are offered on a break-even basis to their members. Through section trips you'll learn all the basics you need to travel safely in the mountains, while meeting new friends to enjoy your experiences with.

There are also many social functions and opportunities to volunteer in a wide variety of areas ranging from environmental advocacy to section management. Many sections have scheduled a regular evening at a regional climbing wall for getting in shape or fine tuning your climbing techniques.

Opportunities to learn the crafts of mountaineering and climbing abound. Most sections provide basic training courses provided by professional guides and mountaineers. Many sections also provide mountain leadership training for their section members with the aim of ever improving mountain leadership and safety within the club.

For information on a section near you, click on any of the section links above for more information on a specific section, or contact the national office.

Trip Waivers

Any participant in activities sponsored by The Alpine Club of Canada is required to sign the Release of Liability, Waiver of All Possible Claims, and Assumption of Risk ("the Release"). The importance of this document to The Alpine Club of Canada, trip leaders, and participants cannot be over-emphasized. The following form is provided for section trip leaders to print out and require their trip participants to read and sign.

The multiple participants waiver form for use on sanctioned ACC Section trips can be found and downloaded from the Adventure Waivers page.

    VISION: Preserving, practicing and promoting Canadian mountain culture and self-propelled alpine pursuits.
