Outward Bound Canada Trainng Academy for Outdoor Professionals
Head office: 2200 Yonge St., Suite 910

Funded by the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Program, the Outward Bound Canada Training Academy for Outdoor Professionals (the “Training Academy”) will recruit and train a new generation of outdoor leaders.
The Training Academy, which launched in the spring of 2022, will increase employment in the outdoor leadership sector. It will also encourage an inclusive candidate pool to ensure that Canada’s outdoor sector employees better represent Canada’s diversity.
Additionally, the outdoor sector has long acknowledged a lack of diversity within its workforce. One reason for this is the ongoing socio-economic barriers for individuals from traditionally marginalized communities to access learning and development opportunities within the industry.
Although this is a complex issue to address, the flexible model of the Training Academy – along with its free cost and inclusive content – has been built to maximize access and reduce barriers to participation by underrepresented groups
