Becoming a Member
We invite you to become a member of the FMCBC. By joining our organization, you become connected with a group of over 5000 people from across BC, many of whom are working hard to ensure that access to quality non-motorized backcountry recreation is protected and maintained.
Our quiet, backcountry spaces are under constant threat of development and rezoning. We provide the voice which protects these spaces with non-motorized recreation interests in mind.
Your membership shows that you support our efforts and helps to increase the strength of our voice when negotiating with commercial outdoor recreation operators, resource industry companies and government agencies. We are very active with committees dedicated to these purposes and encourage all members to become involved by participating on a committee, writing letters, or contributing to our publications.
