Why Become a Member
Outdoor activity has a tremendous positive impact on Canadians. Many passionate and energetic people are delivering high quality programs across the country. However, until now, most efforts are done by individual organizations or by loose provincial groups. This leads to outdoor practitioners feeling isolated and their true contribution to society not being recognized. Now you can join a national organization that works to promote the value and the necessity of outdoor activities.
OCC members receive many benefits from their involvement:
There are two membership levels to choose from when joining the Outdoor Council of Canada:
OCC Members: Members are the voting members of the Council. Anyone who shares our vision is eligible to become a Member.
National Outdoor Coalition Member: this membership option is for organizations wishing to join the National Outdoor Coalition. Click this button for more information on this Initiative. NOI
"The OCC has helped me chart a new career for myself. For years I was in a corporate position, living for my weekend outdoor excursions. Now, I take weekends off, and complete my outdoor excursions during the week. I guide on a casual basis, but my goal is to create my own company and get families out doors and active. The courses that I have taken through the OCC are helping me to achieve this goal."
