Backcountry Women’s primary mandate is to unite, educate, and empower women. We define “women” broadly to include individuals who identify as cisgender, transgender, femme/feminine, genderqueer and non-binary.
This community for outdoors women in Manitoba connects us out on the trails and beyond, and provides a forum to exchange and build our outdoor-related knowledge, skills, and self confidence.
We provide local workshops and activities that helps us address some of the barriers we face as women in the outdoors. We also foster connection among women who love being outside and provide opportunities to join new adventures where you meet like minded people, and potentially get outside your comfort zone!
Backcountry Women believes in a judgement free space for women to encourage and build each other up. We also believe in growing outdoor leaders through our community. Life is better outdoors!
