Our Story

In 2009, the Ontario Access Coalition incorporated as a non-profit organization. Since then, the OAC has been working hard to promote outdoor climbing as a safe and environmentally sustainable outdoor activity in Ontario.  In 2018, the Ontario Access Coalition changed its name to the Ontario Alliance of Climbers.

Our team of volunteers is committed to and passionate about building a community of mutual respect between climbers, landowners, conservation authorities, and other property managers. We foster strategic relationships to educate, mediate, and negotiate the various needs of all parties.
