The Alpine Club of Canada

2024 AGM

May 25th @ 3pm MST, online and in-person.

The Alpine Club
of Canada

The Alpine Club of Canada has 25 local sections across the country from Newfoundland and Labrador to Vancouver Island and the Yukon. We’ve been passionate about climbing, hiking and skiing in alpine environments for over 100 years. Everyone is welcome.



The ACC maintains a wide variety of family-friendly huts in alpine
meadows, backcountry powder paradises, remote climbers’ refuges
and everything in between.


Winter adventures are online
and Open for registrations!

Whether you want to learn something new, upgrade your skills
or summit mountains, we have something for you.



Canada’s wilderness is a diminishing and irreplaceable resource of great intrinsic value, not only to those who recreate in its spaces, but to everyone on our planet. The Environment Fund is a permanent fund to be used to create a legacy of environmental improvement.

The Environment Fund provides financial support each year to projects related to the preservation of alpine and Arctic environments, and climbing areas in Canada. Your donation goes directly to these projects.

The Alpine Club
of Canada

Our club delivers great value and fellowship, enriches lives, promotes and protects our natural spaces. But our community’s needs and interests are changing and we need to keep pace. You are helping provide alpine explorers with affordable, responsible and thrilling wilderness adventures. You are caring for and growing North America’s largest system of back-country huts. You are fostering a network of talented volunteers and leaders. You are celebrating our mountain story and advocating for the protection of our environment.
