The Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) is Canada's national mountaineering organization. Based in Canmore, Alberta, the ACC has been a focal point for Canadian mountaineers since 1906. The ACC has 28 alpine huts and 19 regional club sections across Canada. They offer mountain adventures throughout the country and around the world, publish books and journals related to mountain culture, provide support for access and environmental issues, an avenue into competition climbing, financial grans that support a variety of mountaineering-related projects and much more.
