In a continuous effort to increase inclusivity and accessibility in sport climbing, Climbing Escalade Canada has reviewed and updated its Foreign Nationals Policy.
Starting with the 2021-2022 Competition Season, all participant Canadians, regardless of their citizenship status, will be bound by the same rules and regulations. This change aims to align our policies with our values – CEC truly believes in creating positive and inclusive competitive environments open equally to ALL Canadians, up until International Federation rules apply.
Who can attend CEC-sanctioned events?
- Canadian citizens, living in Canada or abroad – must qualify through their Provincial or Territorial Sport Organization (PTSO)
- Residents of Canada, regardless of their citizenship status, as long as they are not actively competing for another National Climbing Federation – must qualify through their Provincial or Territorial Sport Organization (PTSO)
- Participants, who may or may not be residents of Canada, and who are active members of another National Climbing Federation, MUST apply to CEC
