AOHVA 4-Point Plan

The AOHVA 4-Point Plan for Environmentally Responsible OHV Use

AOHVA has a 4-point plan to ensure that past damage is corrected and not repeated in the future. Our proposed solution is comprehensive and actionable, inclusive and environmentally, socially, and financially responsible. By incorporating best practices from across North America and by implementing innovative approaches to developing, managing and sustaining shared trail networks we can make Alberta the model for shared recreational trail development and management.

We are committed to:

  1. Design and Development
    Working with the Government of Alberta, municipalities, Land Use Framework staff and AOHVA experienced members in designing and developing trails and trail heads that are sustainable and environmentally-sound and repairing damaged trails.


  1. Protection and Partnership
    A new OHV User Fee is proposed that would be dedicated to tackling important issues like proper trail planning, design, construction and maintenance in partnership with AOHVA, Clubs and volunteers under an accountable, transparent AOHVA Service Delivery Structure.


  1. Tools and Mandate
    Ensuring the Government of Alberta provides law enforcement agencies with the tools and mandate to fully enforce the law.


  1. Better Experience
    Building a better environmental and trail experience. Alberta can lead the way in OHV trail development by organizations like AOHVA and its like-minded partners to be responsible for environmental stewardship as a means of eliminating improper use of the back country.

The benefits of the 4-Point Plan would be:

  • Significant decrease in environmental damage
  • Increase in the number of trails available and the types of user experiences offered for OHV riding
  • Significant contribution to economy attributed to motorized recreation
  • Unauthorized private land use by OHV users is rare
  • A thriving OHV community with a strong support for the Rider Federation, OHV Clubs and volunteer base
