Can we hold our Hike on a Different Day?

Can we use the CHPCA’s promotional materials?

Yes!  The CHPCA produces a number of promotional materials for your use.  These include posters, advertisements, pledge forms, in Honour/Memory of Placards, etc.  The CHPCA also provides a number of helpful documents that can be used in aiding you to correspond with your local media.

Will the CHPCA be sending out posters?

Yes, the CHPCA will be providing posters to Hike Sites free of charge.  Each year the CHPCA distributes a customizable poster to the Hike Sites who have registered.  This resource is in addition to the many wonderful downloadable resources available in the Hike Site Resources Login area.  During the registration process, you are asked to provide a number of posters that you would like to receive.  The CHPCA will do everything we can to accommodate this request, but late registrants run the risk of not receiving the amount requested.  If you do not specify an amount, the CHPCA will still send you some copies of the poster.  If you do not wish to receive the posters, please enter 0 into the amount requested field.
