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, volunteering and social activities. Explore this website to learn more about volkssporting in Canada and to find a walking club near you.


 Greetings from David Hall, CVF President

 

DavidWelcome! If you are looking for information on walking in Canada, you’re at the right place. The Canadian Volkssport Federation (CVF) is a national organization that promotes walking in Canada. We have been part of the international Volkssport movement for over 30 years. If you are looking for walk routes near you, or interested in joining a walking club, you will find all that information here.

 

Like everyone else, we have had a chaotic 2020 with so many cancelled group walks and events and so many ever-changing rules.  I am looking forward to 2021 when, once most of us have received the vaccine and the restrictions have eased, clubs may be able to continue with their planned events. Keep watching this website and that of your local club for information as things evolve.

 

I am proud to be President of this fun and exciting organization. My 15 years of walking with Volkssport has given me the opportunity to walk all 10 provinces, 50 USA States and many EU countries. This would not have happened if I hadn’t joined a Volkssport club!

Feel free to contact me if you don’t find the answers on our website.
