No club in your area?
As a member of OANS, you are welcome to travel to any provincially-sanctioned
orienteering event or training session. Events are not necessarily
located in the community where a club is headquartered, so you
may not have to travel far. Check our Event Schedule to find out
if there is an event close to you.
In addition to the COF-recognized clubs listed above, there are orienteering groups in other areas of the province. Contact the OANS office to inquire if there is a group in your area. Follow this link for information about group membership.
We are actively seeking club organizers and activity leaders throughout Nova Scotia. Whether you are interested in starting an orienteering club in your area or in volunteering with one of the existing clubs, we look forward to hearing from you!
Contact our main office at (902) 425-5454 ext. 341 or e-mail
us to inquire about groups in your area, group membership, starting
an orienteering club, or volunteering.
