Summit Outcomes


The Canadian Outdoor Summit is an epic, national, historic project enabling the creation of a more unified, national outdoor community and begin to remove roadblocks currently affecting outdoor programming.

The national outdoor community is broad, diverse and includes any organization offering Led Outdoor Activities (schools, camps, guiding companies, outdoor clubs, therapeutic programs) or associated with Led Outdoor Activities (training organizations, certifying bodies, and land managers).  The Summit is intentionally designed to respect the wealth of knowledge found from coast-to-coast-to-coast. This knowledge is leveraged to accomplish outcomes that will be of benefit to the national outdoor community.

The overarching goal of the Summit is to accelerate the transformation required for Led Outdoor Activities to thrive. To accomplish this, the Summit is focusing on the following outcomes:

  • Increasing awareness through information sharing, knowledge development, idea evaluation, and resource identification;
  • Increasing alignment through consensus building, affinity grouping, and community connection;
  • Promoting action through ideation, problem-solving, and collective action.

A more unified voice as a community is critical to better inform decisions and policy across the country with our knowledge and expertise. By providing a truly representative interlocutor for governments, policies will support investment and growth for outdoor programs. This will benefit the whole community,
