The National ACC membership page

BASIC FEE: The basic fee is for membership in three organizations:

  1. Vancouver Island Section of the Alpine club of Canada (ACC)
  2. National level of the ACC
  3. Federation of Mountain Clubs of British Columbia (FMBC)

Our local section offers mountaineering trips, a variety of social events, and publishes newsletters and an annual, The Island Bushwhacker.

The national membership entitles you to the following:

  • quarterly national newsletters
  • affiliation with Union Internationale d'Association Alpinistes (UIAA)
  • member rates on ACC publications and maps
  • member rates at the Canadian Alpine Centre at Lake Louise
  • access to all nationally run camps
  • programs and treks
  • comprehensive liability insurance while participating in ACC activities

Through the FMCBC we have a stronger voice to deal with issues common to outdoor groups (eg.environmental and access concerns).

ACC FACILITIES UPGRADE: Choosing a facilities upgrade with your ACC membership entitles you to member rates at all ACC huts and the Canmore Clubhouse. In addition you are entitled to 6 month advance booking privileges to ensure there is space in your favourite hut.

CANADIAN ALPINE JOURNAL: The CAJ has been published annually since 1906 and features excellent articles and photos describing the achievements of Canadian climbers around the world. It is wonderful reading.
