André Mahé

André was instrumental in advocating for the inception of Le Club d’escalade de Saint-Boniface (CESB) as a section of the ACC in 1993, and has remained as its Chair and section rep since that time. The creation of the Saint-Boniface section was a watershed in the introduction of Canada’s second official language to Canada’s national mountaineering organization, a legacy that the ACC continues to build upon today. He has been instrumental in organizing annual section trips to the Rocky Mountains, the creation and operation of the Saint-Boniface ice tower and the indoor gym of École Précieux-Sang. He is also the current Chair of the national Awards Committee. He is a Life Member of both the Saint-Boniface and Manitoba sections.

André Mahé was awarded the Alpine Club of Canada’s Distinguished Service Award in 2002 and in 2013.
