The Club d’escalade de Saint-Boniface

The Club d’escalade de Saint-Boniface ( CESB ) was founded in January of 1993, Later that same year it joined the National Club as the St. Boniface Section of the Alpine Club of Canada – thus becoming the first francophone section of the ACC. Our section is a volunteer based club that promotes a wide variety of outdoor activities, including wall climbing, rock climbing, ice climbing, hiking and an annual week-long trip to a destination in the Canadian Rockies.

The Alpine Club of Canada

The Alpine Club of Canada ( ACC ) was founded in Winnipeg in 1906 as Canada’s National Mountaineering Club.

Not only does the ACC offer year-round activities and services through its Mountain Adventures program, but it also administers an extensive system of alpine and backcountry huts throughout the Canadian Rockies. The ACC has grown into a full-fledge mountaineering organization that strives to provide an enormous range of benefits and services to its members.
