About CEC

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.

Our values. 

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.  Staff: Christiane Marceau, Executive Director, Email Andrew Wilson, High Performance Director.

Day 2 of Workd champs today

Boulderers center stage today.

@rileyclimbs and Madison Fischer in Women's and @zach_richardson_ and @guymcnamee in Men's.

Maddie grabbed 2 tops and 3 zones to post 25th, her best IFSC Senior result to date and just outside semis. Riley managed to find 1 zone in her first ever IFSC Senior Competition to finish 71st. She will undoubtedly learn from the experience and be back stronger in the future.

Guy snagged 51st place in the men's with 1 top and 3 zones. A decent result for his IFSC Senior event. Zach couldn't find his usual form and finished 65th with 2 Zones. We know he'll be back 🙂

So nice to see the Maple Leaf on the World Stage!!
