Canadian Volkssport Federation (CVF) serves to
unify volkssport clubs across Canada and to promote their
cooperation. We are a non-profit
organization dedicated to promoting healthy, non-competitive volkssport
activities for people of all ages throughout the country. Although
volkssporting activities include walking, swimming, cross-country
skiing and cycling, walking events are the most popular among
volkssporters in Canada.
There are over 30 clubs in Canada,
offering a wide variety of walks. Walks include
urban streets and trails, mountains and glorious lake and ocean views.
We invite walkers of all ages to join us on a walk.
In addition to walking activities, volkssport
offers many opportunities
for discovery, volunteering and social activities. Explore this website

wishes to you during these difficult times. I hope you are well.
Wherever you are and whatever you do, you are facing a historic
and unprecedented challenge alongside people and organizations from around the
world. And you are tackling it head-on.

every aspect of our society. This invisible enemy is scary and strong, and it

and realize that because we all did our part, we emerged stronger as a nation.
Our collective resilience will lead to our collective victory.
In the meantime, as we hold the line, let us focus not on what we
cannot control, but on the news that give us hope.
Please stay in touch. Talk to us on social media @GGJuliePayette

We are all part of the fight against COVID-19.
