About us / Reports and Financials

The whole experience really reminded me to be true to myself, overcome my fears and be accepting of others. It reinforced the person I want to be both in and out of the military.

Get Out. Look in.

In 1969, Outward Bound Canada ran its first course in Keremeos, B.C. That was nearly 50 years ago, and we’ve come a long way since then – providing challenging journeys of self-discovery in the natural world for nearly 175,000 Canadians from coast to coast.

Our reports aim to update you, our donors, alumni, and friends – on the progress we’ve made, the lives we’ve impacted, and our ability to achieve what we set out to do. Our Impact Reports showcase our mission test, academic studies affiliated with Outward Bound Canada, as well as profiles on our generous and dedicated supporters and program participants. To learn more about why we do what we do, and our goals for the future, you can read our most recent Impact Report.
