Climbing Medicine Canada

Our mission is to advance the art and science of climbing medicine, through knowledge exchange and collaboration between climbing health professionals.

In Support of Canadian Climbing

Climbing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and, with the addition of climbing to the 2020 Olympic games, that growth is expected to increase dramatically in the years to come. As a result, there is an increasing need to share and expand our expertise in climbing medicine, not only in Canada but across the world.

The first Canadian Climbing Medicine Symposium was held in Toronto, Ontario. Building on the success of the 2017 symposium and the growth of climbing across Canada, we are excited to announce the 2019 Canadian Climbing Medicine Symposium (CCMS).

This year, the symposium offers three days of content, discussion and hands-on activities focused on sport climbing related health, medicine, social sciences and performance.
