paThe Canadian Volkssport Federation (CVF) serves to unify volkssport clubs across Canada and to promote their mutual cooperation. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting healthy, non-competitive volkssport activities for people of all ages throughout the country. Although volkssporting activities include walking, swimming, cross-country skiing and cycling, walking events are the most popular among volkssporters in Canada.

There are over 30 clubs in Canada, offering a wide variety of walks. Walks include parks, forests, urban streets and trails, mountains and glorious lake and ocean views. We invite walkers of all ages to join us on a walk.

In addition to walking activities, volkssport offers many opportunities for discovery, voluntarism and social activities. Explore this website to learn more about volkssporting in Canada and to find a walking club near you.
