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:

- member rates on ACC publications and maps
- member rates at the Canadian Alpine Centre at Lake Louise
- access to all nationally run camps

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