CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF OUTWARD BOUND IN CANADA

In 2019, we're marking half a century of life-changing adventure in Canada! Outward Bound Canada’s 50th anniversary is a cause for celebration, and in honour of this special occasion, we're celebrating all year with special events and expeditions, as well as several opportunities to "Get out. Look in. Give Back."

As someone who has completed an Outward Bound Canada journey as a staff member, or is currently involved with OBC, remember:

YOU'RE ALWAYS PART OF A COMMUNITY

We know that the experiences you have had while on your journey were valuable and will last you a lifetime. As an a current or former staff member, we encourage you to stay in touch, to share your memories with upcoming members, and to pass on your knowledge.
