OFSC Promotes Organized Snowmobiling in Ottawa


The OFSC is always active, working behind the scenes to advocate for the betterment of organized snowmobiling in Ontario, such as the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation grant of up to $834,904 for new trail infrastructure projects recently announced by Ontario Minister of Transportation Caroline Mulroney.

On October 4, 2022 OFSC President Murray Baker, CEO Ryan Eickmeier and Stakeholders Relations Director Andrew Walasek joined their colleagues from other provincial associations in Ottawa to participate in a “Walk On The Hill” hosted by the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO) to advocate with Federal MPs about issues important to snowmobiling. Their meetings with Ontario MP’s included Michelle Ferreri (Peterborough-Kawarthas), Phillip Lawrence (Northumberland-Peterborough South) and Michael Barrett (Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands & Rideau Lakes). They also spoke with federal Tourism Minister Randy Boissonnault and Rural Economic Development Minister Gudie Hutchings and about the importance of a federal funding partnership, and are pictured above with the CCSO Executive Committee.
