Orienteering is on ParticipACTION's 150 Play List

ParticipACTION has just announced the 150 activities which are on their 150 Play List. The ParticipACTION 150 Play List was created by over 465,000 votes from people across Canada. Including 150 physical activities that make us uniquely Canadian, the Play List is a challenge to Canadians in communities, schools, workplaces, and even abroad to see how many different activities they can complete in 2017.

Orienteering is on the 150 Play List. We are so excited to see how many Canadians we can get orienteering!

More details to come… but we wanted to let you know about the announcement that orienteering is on the 150 Play List.

Celebrating Orienteering Canada's 50th anniversary

2017 is the year that we celebrate Orienteering Canada turning 50 years old! The organization was incorporated in 1967, making 2017 a big year. We’ve got lots planned to celebrate and we hope you join the celebrations too!


We will be launching a virtual Hall of Fame to help us celebrate the folks who have played a key role in moving orienteering forward in Canada. Stay tuned for more details.


We have launched Orienteering Canada’s historical collection.  If you have a story, a map, a photo or anything else that would help us celebrate our 50 year history, and that can be added to our electronic collection, please send it our way.


To celebrate this 50 year milestone, we are creating an endowment fund to help orienteering in Canada grow over the next 50 years. Help us celebrate Orienteering Canada’s past by contributing to its future. Visit our fundraising page

How can you help with this fundraising campaign?
> Visit our fundraising page
> Make a one-time donation
> Consider making a monthly donation
> Host an orienteering event and donate the proceeds to this fundraiser
> Have a fundraising event at an orienteering event (a bake sale, a donation box…)
> Create a fundraising page with your orienteering friends or your club and issue a challenge to your neighbouring club… can they beat your donations? You can create groups on our fundraising platform.
> Come up with our own ideas to help us reach our audacious goal of $50k for 50 years. Every dollar donated will have an impact!


We are thrilled that the 2017 Canadians Orienteering Championships will be in Ottawa as Canada celebrate turning 150. What a great place to celebrate Orienteering Canada’s 50th too. The organizing committee is working hard to put one some 50th themed events, including a re-run of the first Canadian Orienteering Championships in Gatineau Park. The Conference will have a definite 50th-anniversary theme and we are looking forward to welcoming lots of participants who have been instrumental in Orienteering Canada’s past.



Calling all clubs and associations to think about how you can celebrate this great milestone. Orienteering Canada is getting together a tool kit to give you some ideas to supplement your ideas.


We have some 50th anniversary merchandise too… Stay tuned for ordering info.
