Hello all in Canada!

 

Since we Geocachers are now beginning to discuss policies and guidelines with various land owner groups I thought it might be helpful for our "Reviewers" and local cachers as well as other groups to create a list of Provincial/Territory Geocaching groups. Please only request addition if you have a web site to link to.

In Saskatchewan, there is no group as of yet (or a small on at that) lol. I have started a msn group Saskatchewan Geocaching and started to point Saskatchewan Cachers to the site. There are approximately 150 active cachers in Saskatchewan with the bulk of them in the two major cities. Once I get a chance to contact a few more cachers, I will be setting up a meeting in both cities and getting the group off to a good start. Hopefully before the snow flies, we will have a web site up and running and a executive to have a quorum with.

Well that is inconvenient!

 

I thought I would be able to go back and continuously update the Original Post, but it appears that is not possible.

 

So I guess, if people can post links to their groups in this thread, everyone will have access to them, and people can creat offsite pages.

 

Would have been nice to have it here for anyone that comes onto the forums so it was centralized.

 

If anyone has a better solution, please post it here!

I was able to edit the Original Post. I don't know if it is because it is pinned now, or if this is just a temporary priveledge.

 

I added Swifteroo's COG to the local list

I added Parker's Saskatchewan MSN Group

I added Gonzo-YT's Yukon page

 

Either way, I hope we can build a huge list. I stumbled across other groups in Canada, but I didn't want to go too far in case some are no longer active.

P.S. Cache-Tech, I will let you know if I need your help, but I hope to not bother you. I do that enough LOL.

Here's my list of geocaching groups throughout Canada and the world. Note that I have only included those that have web pages here. There are other groups that just have a presence on Yahoo or MSN groups. See if there is anything there I have forgotten and let me know. :(

 

Geocaching groups

Although the www.quebecgps.com website still exists, the official website for the new official geocaching association in Québec is now www.geocaching-qc.com (the site is still in french!)

In case you haven't heard it in a while... thank you for keeping this up to date! :D

Well since I cannot edit the original post, even if I am signed in as OGA - Admin, the more practical route is for people to scan though the threads to find their own local group.

 

We do have most of these on our site, and we are looking to overhaul that page over the winter.

 

So, while it was the original idea to update here, that has turned out to not be feasible. So everyone seems to be announcing their own groups here. That is probably better in the long run so that the person that is responsible for the group is actually providing their own group info.
