Competitive Climbing in Nova Scotia

Mission Statement

Climb Nova Scotia is recognized as the emerging Provincial Sports Organization (PSO) for the sport of competitive climbing in Nova Scotia. The volunteer committee is responsible for the organization, promotion and advocacy of climbing as a sport in Nova Scotia.


While CNS will continue to uphold its mandate as a Provincial Recreational Organization (PRO) and as an advocate for outdoor access, a growing demand for support in the realm of competitive sport has emerged over the past couple of years. We seek to support those athletes, coaches, routesetters and the community at large in their development.

Climb Nova Scotia is an active member of Sport Nova Scotia and is recognized by our National Sport Organization (NSO), Climb Escalade Canada (CEC) as the governing body for climbing within the province.

As a sport organization, Climb Nova Scotia strives to embody an approach that:

  • is athlete centered
