Join the BCMTNA

Locate the 'Members' button on the top menu bar and follow the directions. Individual membership is $25.00 and family membership is $40.00. There are a number of benefits including special technology tools for planning your next BC coastline paddling trip. Members are eligible to run for board positions during Annual General Meetings.

Become a TaskForce Member

A  TaskForce member is a representative of one of the BCMTNA member paddling clubs and attends Forum (formerly called TaskForce) meetings held 2 or 3 times a year. A TaskForce member acts as a liason between his/her paddling club and the BCMTNA, is part of the working core of the Association, and as such, eligible to become a director.

Join your local paddling club
Most paddling clubs in British Columbia are already supporters of the BC Marine Trail Network. Joining your local club will not only keep you apprised of developments but will also contribute to the overall support.

If your local club is not a part of the BCMTNA, urge your club directors to get in touch with us.

Help spread the word!
If you have a paddling website or blog, add a link to www.bcmarinetrails.org to inform other paddlers of our efforts.

The BC Marine Trails Network (BCMTN) will be a series of interconnecting marine trails along the entire BC coastline:

  • designed with frequent access points, stopovers and campsites for users of small, beachable watercraft
  • to ensure continued coastal access for public marine recreationists to travel the BC coast and to land and camp along the way
