welcome to OAC  

For more than 12 years now, Outdoor Adventure Canada has been the only web-based magazine of its kind in Canada.

Take some time and explore our site and be sure to visit our Facebook page to participate in a friendly discussion about backpacking, paddling, trail running or backcountry cooking or to share a trip report with us.

We'd like to thank Our Sponsors both past and present for helping us make Outdoor Adventure Canada what it is today. Without your support we would not still be here.

We cover a wide range of outdoorsy subjects as you can see from the menu to your left. The menu links to current articles about backpacking, canoeing and other activites but you'll still be able to find many of our past articles and gear reviews in OAC's Article Index.

Here is a quick peek at the current issue...
