About the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC

The Federation of Mountain Clubs of British Columbia (FMCBC) is the only province-wide umbrella organization dedicated to protecting and maintaining access to BC’s backcountry.

Since 1972, we have represented the interests of outdoor clubs from every corner of the province and have provided a united voice on issues related to non-motorized backcountry recreation.

Our membership is comprised of a diverse group of thousands of non-motorized backcountry recreationists including hikers, rock climbers, mountaineers, mountain bikers, trail runners, kayakers, backcountry skiers and snowshoers. As an organization, we believe the enjoyment of these pursuits in an unspoiled environment is a vital component to the quality of life for British Columbians, and by acting under the policy of “talk, understand and persuade” we advocate for these interests.
