The OFSC is a non-profit, grassroots, volunteer-driven federation responsible for a network of over 30,000 kilometres of recreational snowmobile trails, a fleet of 300 industrial trail groomers, and relationships with 18,000 private landowners. These responsibilities are largely dependent on local volunteerism by willing snowmobilers.
At the club level, volunteers lead all operational responsibilities to deliver a snowmobile trail network within their area. Outdoor activities include working with landowners, trail development, signage installation and trail grooming activities. But inside, there’s also work that need doing, from scheduling trail work and supplies to keeping track of the finances, to club communications. Anyone with good computer and social media skills can offer their assistance – an ideal way for those who don’t live where they ride to volunteer remotely.
Each of our 16 OFSC districts are also volunteer-led and provide support to clubs situated within their region, lead the local delivery of provincial programs, and also deliver programs and services of common regional need for their clubs.
