What Guides and Instructors Are Certified To Do
ACMG members are trained and certified to guide and instruct climbing, hiking and skiing adventures throughout Canada and the rest of world. They have been examined through a rigorous process to the standards set by the ACMG - the highest in Canada.
Many government land managers and agencies recognize the training, certification and practices of ACMG members above all others.

The classic relationship between guides and their guests has changed little in over a hundred years of guiding in Canada. The clothing and equipment has evolved but the allure of high mountain summits has remained.
What has changed is the scope of the activities and challenges that ACMG guides and instructors enjoy with their guests and students.
Thank you to our partners for their excellent support and commitment to professional guiding in Canada.
