In the Recreation & Conservation program, committees work with representatives from the provincial government, land and resource industries and commercial recreation to resolve conflicts with other users and stakeholders.
In the Trails & Access program, the committees' work includes trail access, trail building and maintenance, advocating for new trail projects, networking with BC Parks, the Ministry of Forests and Range, and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts.
The FMCBC allocates donations received to a specific fund to support projects being worked on by our member clubs. These funds, in addition to an annual budget of $1500, make up our annual Member Club Grant funding.
Member Clubs have the opportunity to purchase 3rd Party Liability coverage through our Commercial General Liability policy and coverage for their club Executive Members through our Directors and Officers Liability Insurance program.
The Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC (FMCBC) promotes self-propelled activities, such as hiking, mountaineering and backcountry skiing through leadership, advocacy and education. We are a federation of outdoor clubs with a membership of approximately 4900 people from 33 clubs across the province. By working together with outdoor recreation organizations, industry and government agencies, we work to protect and maintain access for non-motorized backcountry recreation in British Columbia’s mountains and forests.
