The MOC mission is to get you outside, no matter what your experience. We run trips, rent out gear at very low prices, and provide a communal house in the foothills of the Shield.
If you want to be in the know:
- Sign up for the listserv and/or the Slack, our two digital community hubs.
- Come to a meeting. These are announced on the listserv and Slack.
You can always drop into an office hour with more questions.
McGill University and the McGill Outdoors Club are in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka Nation, a place that has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst many First Nations. We recognize and respect Indigenous rights to the lands and waters where we paddle, climb, hike, cycle, and ski today.
Canada’s violent colonial history is not something in our distant past, but rather it is recent and ongoing. The last residential school in Canada only closed in 1996, and other forms of oppression and colonisation, including land disputes, are ongoing. We encourage members to look into resources like Native Land Digital to learn more about Indigenous polities and to study current land disputes.
