Advocacy Efforts

AOHVA actively participates in a variety of advocacy-related initiatives to preserve and protect access to Alberta’s public spaces on behalf of Albertans.

AOHVA has worked diligently and in collaboration with the government for the past 7 years to establish a dedicated and focused organization to ensure the appropriate development, enhancement and maintenance of user-funded, designated trails for all off-highway recreation enthusiasts in Alberta.

AOHVA Board Members have attended more than a hundred meetings with Government of Alberta ministers and staff over the years…and while there have been different ministers and staff, our team was a constant at the table - along with OHV colleagues from member clubs.

AOHVA has been an active Participant throughout the Land Use Frameowrk and Regional Planning processes.
