Welcome to O-Fest 150!

2017 - Orienteering Canada's 50th anniversary; Canada's 150th anniversary, the 50th Canadian Orienteering Championships - lots to celebrate!  We are proud to bring you the Canada 150 Orienteering Festival, July 28 to August 7 - 11 days of orienteering that you won't want to miss!  It all starts with the Eastern Canadian Orienteering Championships hosted by the Montreal Ramblers, followed by the Ottawa O-Fest, and culminating with the Canadian Orienteering Championships.  You will get to orienteer on new and renewed maps in  Montreal, Ottawa, Aylmer, Gatineau Park, Perth, and Westport. 

We're planning a special 50th anniversary Orienteering Canada Conference, a return to the past with our"Retr-O" in Gatineau Park, a participation relay for everyone (as a fundraiser for the national High Performance Program), the annual Sass Peepre Junior Training Camp, and a number of social activities to complement the orienteering.  Please browse through this website for more details.  If you can't find what you're looking for please e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We hope you will join us for the entire O-Fest 150, but if that's not possible, do plan on coming for as much as you can.  We're looking forward to it, and we hope you are too! Check out the rest of this website for more details.
