Orienteering Canada Conference

The Orienteering Canada conference is held in conjunction with the Canadian Orienteering Championships. It’s an ideal opportunity for Canadian orienteers to share information and ideas and to learn from interesting, topical speakers. It’s also a great time to learn about and get involved with the priority projects of Orienteering Canada and to contribute your ideas and energy.

We have some very interesting presentations and topics of conversation planned for our 3 conference sessions. We hope you will join us for a break from your week of orienteering to learn about and chat about some of the great things happening in orienteering in Canada.

Growing Mapping in Canada. A follow-up to the Monday mapping workshop, this indoor session will focus on a discussion of growing mapping in Canada – recruiting and training mappers so we have the skills and people resources within our own country for creating orienteering maps of the highest quality.

Map Reading Theory. A presentation by Jeff Teutsch (Navigation Sports) on the theory of map reading for orienteering. Learn about various models for map reading and how you can use them to improve your orienteering skills. This presentation is relevant to all levels of orienteer.

Navigating Healthy Eating. Lori Heron, Registered Dietitian share insights into healthy eating for all of us. How do we eat well and stay hydrated to help us be our best in sport and in life.

On Site Mapping Workshop

On Monday, July 22, immediately after the HPP Relay, Stefan Bergstrom, Chair of Orienteering Canada’s Mapping Committee will host a mapping workshop at the site of the Relay in Larose Forest. Everyone from experienced mappers to people interested in learning to map are encouraged to join for an afternoon of sharing ideas and techniques.

Orienteering Canada AGM

The AGM is the one time of year when all the members of Orienteering Canada (the provincial/territorial associations) gather to discuss and decide on the business tasks of the association (such as electing board members, making changes to the constitution, reviewing the financial statements, etc). Each Provincial or Territorial Orienteering Association (PTOA) is represented by one delegate at Orienteering Canada’s AGM.  Anyone is welcome to attend as an observer.
