2021 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.

Note that a new listing for Nanook Expeditions has been added on August 6.

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 2021)  that the following retailers and course providers will provide their discounts to club members for 2021.


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

10% discount on regular-priced items and invitations to any VIP events they hold (these are uncertain due to the pandemic)

Wilderness Medical:

Our courses in the Wakefield area tend to fill to capacity and we have limited space so we can't normally do discounts. However—for RACCC members in spring 2021, we can do $50 off the 5-day Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and $100 off the 8-day WFR. Details are here for the 8-day and 5-day Wilderness First Responder courses
