Discounts for RACCC Members

2024 Discounts for RACCC Members

A benefit of being a member of the RACCC is that some retailers and course providers give discounts to club members.

Also, the RA has a number of community partners that represent a wide range of sectors offering benefits to RA members.  Click here for more information.

Have your RACCC membership card with you as this may be required to get the club discount from these retailers. The RACCC membership card (as opposed to the RA photo card) will be emailed to you when you join the canoe club. These cards are only issued so that club members can identify themselves for discounts. Neither the club nor the RA needs members to have cards.  Canoe club members will not be issued RA photo cards since the cost is quite high and club members do not need them for accessing RA facilities like Lifefit.

The club has confirmed (as of March 2024)  that the following retailers and course providers will provide their discounts to club members for 2024.


MEC will have a discount day on April 27 2024 for club members.  See article or calendar entry for details.


Trailhead is still offering a 10% discount on regularly priced in stock merchandise except boats.
