Welcome to Backcountry Women!
Backcountry Women was founded in 2017 to provide opportunities for community, connection, and outdoor adventure. We believe in creating a diverse and positive space for women and other marginalised genders to become empowered and confident through outdoor education, resources, skill development, shared activities and various other experiences.
We aim to create opportunities for individuals to experience the physical and mental benefits of being in nature with a community of amazing people through a variety of year-round outdoor recreational programming and education. Backcountry Women believes that getting outside should be easy, so come join us for an activity and leave the details up to us!
We are based in Manitoba, Canada. In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge that we live, work, and play on the ancestral lands of the Ininiw, Anishinaabe, and Dakota Nations, and the homeland of the Metis Nation. Our organization, Backcountry Women, is based on Treaty No. 1 Territory, and we appreciate that our events take place on Treaty No 1., No. 2., and No. 3. Territories.
