Special notice for Trip Organizers only
The CSC strongly encourages all active hiking, biking, and kayaking trip organizers who do not currently hold first aid certification to obtain a basic 2-day first aid certification (St Johns Ambulance or equivalent) or a similar course like the ones mentioned above
Active organizers currently scheduled to host events this summer will be reimbursed up to $200.00 of the cost upon submission of receipt and proof of completion. If you have taken a course in the past and need recertification, we will cover the recertification cost for active organizers. Please contact email@example.com if you want to confirm eligibility.
Also, active trip organizers will be provided with a first aid kit at no charge if they request/require one (MEC Adventure Backcountry First Aid Kit or equivalent) at a cost to the club of approx. 105.00 plus GST. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to obtain a kit. We will consolidate orders at the end of May and purchase in one lot.
Reimbursement of first aid courses and kits is not available to the general membership.
