Get informed & go outdoors

Summer fun

Sunny skies, warm breezes and lots of daylight make it easy to get outside and play! Enjoy what Canada has to offer by hiking with friends, paddling with family or heading into the back country for some camping, but remember to “get informed before you go outdoors!”
Tip of the Week

Topographic maps are very useful for accurately showing lakes, slope angle and other natural and man-made features. They are excellent for trip planning and coupled with a compass, plus having the proper training can make navigating a safe and fun experience.
