What we do.
The purpose of Climbing Escalade Canada is to be a leader in the promotion and development of competition climbing in Canada for athletes and the extended climbing community. We strive to enable athletes to achieve their high performance potential in an ethical, equitable and equal competition environment.
Climbing Escalade Canada (the CEC) is currently undergoing new and exciting changes that is bringing Canadian competition climbing into accordance with the Sport Canada model. The CEC has been federally incorporated as a National Sport Organization (NSO) with a mandate to regulate and promote the development of competition climbing in Canada. In addition, the CEC provides assistance to athletes, coaches, and event organizers at the national level. There is at least one board member recommended by each PSO or TSO. The Board is elected by the members of the CEC. All CEC Board members have specific mandates and are also expected to serve in the best interests of the entire Canadian competition climbing community. A number of committees support the CEC Board of Directors. The CEC continues to develop its governance structure, administrative capacity and financial resources. The CEC is a member of the IFSC, the IFSC Pan American Council, and has been an official member of the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) since April 2016.
