CEC Consultants and Committees Applications

Sep 11, 2023

CEC is excited to implement a new human resources structure this season! We have appointed three consultants to focus on “making our people better.” Consultants will chair their respective volunteer committees to improve the quality, quantity, and diversity of belayers, officials, and route setters in Canada.

At this time, we are also opening applications for our 2023-2024 Volunteer Committees. Please join us (or continue with us) to improve CEC, one committee at a time.

The deadline to apply (or re-apply) is 11:59 p.m. EST, September 27, 2023.

Today, the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games proposed to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to add Para Climbing to the 2028 Paralympic Sport Program. That is one step closer to inclusion of our sport in the Paralympic Games!
