Have you done your research on the Proposed Bill 23 (More Homes Built Faster Act) and Amendments to the Greenbelt Plan?
The Ontario government is soliciting comments from the public on these proposed changes. Submit your thoughts on Bill 23 by midnight this Thursday, November 24. The comment submission window for the Amendments to the Greenbelt Plan extends a little longer, through December 4th.
Links to submit comments on both of these can be found in our bio.
Thank you to everyone who tuned into our 2022 Virtual AGM last week 🙏
Congratulations to Patrick Lam, Mike Makischuk, and Randy Kielbasciwicz on their re-elections to the board! Also a big thank you goes out to Joshua Leyte-Jammu, the recipient of the 2022 OAC Service Award, for his work as OAC treasurer.
If you were unable to attend this year's AGM, the recording is available via the link in our bio!
As always, we are looking for more volunteers to join us in ramping up efforts for the next year. If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out to email@example.com for more information!

Question...? Have you submitted your photos to the 2023 Ontario Crags Calendar yet? This is a reminder that entries are due at #midnight on Wednesday, November 2nd! Make sure to submit in time so you're not left wondering if the cover would've, could've, should've been yours 😉
We'll be looking for a variety of images that represent how diverse climbing can be throughout the province, for a true showcase of Ontario climbing. Just as diverse as our tracklist! (Are you familiar with all these climbs?)
Submission details can be found at the link in our bio!

It’s that time of year again! Our call for photo submissions for the 2023 OAC Ontario Crags Calendar is now OPEN!!
The Ontario Crags Calendar aims to celebrate and highlight the wide variety of climbing that Ontario has to offer. We want to showcase everything from as many different crags, seasons, and climbers as possible — ICE, SPORT, TRAD and BOULDERING are all honoured here. Let’s celebrate the diversity of our province and our community! Valid photo submissions must have LANDSCAPE orientation (i.e. horizontal), and be of climbers at Ontario crags only (of course!). In order to meet print standards, full size images must be clear and at least 8.5″x11″ at 300 dpi.
Submissions do not need to be dated from this year, but they DO need to showcase your love for Ontario climbing. So make the most of this tail end of the season, or take some time to venture down memory lane and rediscover some forgotten gems!
The Ontario Crags Calendar helps us raise awareness and funds in support of Ontario access. Please consider donating a photo!
Send your best shots to firstname.lastname@example.org by WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND for a chance to be featured. Chosen entrants will receive a free copy of the calendar, credit complete with name and website, and a little slice of local fame 😉
Please see additional rules of submission at the link in our bio.
This great shot of @jazzyjwats was our centrefold poster for the 2022 calendar, taken and submitted by @russ_sean. Whose photo be featured this year?!
