An Honour for Contributions in Canadian Mountaineering
Honorary Membership in the ACC was instituted in 1906 at the first meeting of the Club. The current form of this award is a special pin accompanied by a brass on wood plaque.
Honorary Membership is the highest recognition the Alpine Club of Canada offers for contributions to Canadian mountaineering and includes a life membership in the ACC. It is presented to individuals with a strong and sustained commitment to the Canadian mountain environment and Canadian mountaineering – recipients will have given outstanding service to the Canadian climbing community.
