Canadian Volkssport Federation (CVF) serves to
unify volkssport clubs across Canada and to promote their
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
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, volunteering and social activities. Explore this website
