Geocaching Organizations in Canada

64 posts in this topic

This topic is to let you know about the regional geocaching organizations near you. These groups sponsor event caches and online forums where geocachers in the same area can get to know each other and share information. Geocaching organizations play a pivotal role in maintaining good relations with the land managers for the parks and forests where we play our game. Getting involved in your local group is a great way to make new friends and find answers to questions about the local caching scene.

 

It is up to representatives of the organizations to maintain this thread as a list of links to the Geocaching Groups in Canada. Please feel free to write a brief post about your geocaching group, giving its name, the area where most of its members live, and a link to the group's website, forums or mailing list. If your information changes later on, post a follow-up post.

 

Please do not use this pinned topic to promote individual events or initiatives that your group is undertaking. You can start separate topics for those. The moderating team may split out off topic posts into their own threads.

 

Finally, please note that this thread is not an endorsement by Groundspeak of any organization. It's just a convenient list of links.

For some reason, there is no provincial geocaching association for Alberta, but a multitude of regional-area groups. I wonder...

T/\G - Toronto Area Geocachers has launched now at http://torontogeocaching.com

 

This is a resource for cachers in the Greater Toronto Area, we have forums for discussion and will be reviving the GTA Geofriends events as T/\G events now. We have links to other area caching associations and will be adding resources to the site, including a Geocaching 101 section and Howtos as our organization grows.

 

This is also where the Ontario Trails Project, a free recreational trails map of Ontario (for your GPS) is hosted.

The link for the Kooteney Geocachers seems to be broken. Or maybe the site just doesn't exist anymore. Anyone have any info on this or an updated link?

Thanks I figured as much. I was just curious if my name was on the list of Ottawa area cachers since I found one of Valpor's (sp) caches

Throw it out there - I'd be more than willing to host the site free of charge if you guys are hitting bwidth cap constantly.

 

rjo@rynet.com if interested (any other association for that matter - if you are ever looking for a reliable host for your site and your requirements aren't excessive (i.e. your site doesn't suck bwidth and ram like a mad man :D) I'd be more than happy to help out)

Just thought I'd pipe up and say that the saskcachers site is no longer active. However a site for the Saskatoon and Area Geocaching Association has been recently created: SAGA

 

I've heard rumours that one is in the works for the Regina geocachers too.
