Welcome to BC Whitewater, the FMCBC’s newest Associate Member!

Founded in 2018, BC Whitewater is a non-profit society that was created to advocate for publicly accessible, free-flowing rivers throughout the province. British Columbia has world-class recreational opportunities on its rivers that are worth protecting. It is BC Whitewater’s mission to improve access to BC’s waterways and keep them wild. The goal of BCWW is to consolidate the voices of paddlers to have a stronger voice as stakeholders of BC’s wilderness.

BC Whitewater’s main initiatives include:

  • The implementation of a free online guidebook for paddling in BC
  • Supporting local projects for improving river access
  • Representing the paddling community of BC as a stakeholder in conflicts involving river access and conservation
