Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) is excited to welcome the New Brunswick Sport Climbing (NBSC) as the newest member of the CEC. The NBSC is also recognized as the official Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) for competition climbing in New Brunswick. The NBSC was incorporated in 2022, and has grown steadily over the past two years. NBSC becomes the seventh PTSO to join the CEC family, and the CEC looks forward to working with NBSC in the future.
“It is a privilege to welcome the New Brunswick Sport Climbing into our family of strong organizations empowering climbers in their individual development pathways in Canada. NBSC will have an important voice in helping CEC shape the direction of competition climbing in the years to come” says Christiane Marceau, Executive Director of CEC.
CEC is Canada’s national governing body for the sport of competition climbing. The purpose of CEC is to lead the promotion and development of competition climbing in Canada for athletes and the extended climbing community. CEC strives to enable athletes to achieve high performance potential in a safe, ethical, and equitable competition environment.
This ambitious purpose could not be achieved without the help and support of the Provincial and Territorial Sport Organizations (PTSO) and the Alpine Club of Canada. NBSC’s goal is to promote and develop competition climbing in New Brunswick for athletes, and the extended climbing community.
“We at Escalade Sportive N-B|NB Sport Climbing are very proud to be the first of the Atlantic provinces to be accepted as a member of CEC, and we are looking forward to the opportunities this will provide for the climbing community in New Brunswick.” says Natalie Scholten, Executive Director of NBSC. “We are dedicated to growing the sport of competition climbing by promoting long term athlete development, coach and official education, and providing athletes with a structured pathway to National competition. Thank you for offering us a seat at the table and we look forward to working with CEC in the future.”
