AOHVA makes formal submission to Alberta Environment and Parks; Castle Parks Draft Management Plan

The NDP Government is currently enacting the biggest change to land use in the province in 30 years. With that in mind, AOHVA took the opportunity to provide the government with some important insight and information.


ACESS submits proposal for Castle Draft Management Plan

The Alberta Committee for Eastern Slopes Stewardship (ACESS) has prepared this proposal for a model of open camping within the Castle Parks area.



The Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association, known simply as the AOHVA, was created over 30 years ago by a diverse group of off-road enthusiasts concerned about the lack of a united front to represent the interests of off-road motorcyclists and ATV riders throughout the province of Alberta. Since that time, the AOHVA has developed and maintained an on-going working relationship with the provincial government and local municipalities across the province.

The Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association is a key player in land access plans all around the province, and works with local area off-road clubs, other interested organizations, and government agencies to retain and maintain riding areas for current and future off-road motorcyclists and ATV and UTV (side by side) enthusiasts.

As increasing pressure is put upon our outdoor activity, it is very important that ALL off-road motorcyclists, ATV and UTV riders become part of the solution to create sustainable single track and multi-use trails throughout Alberta.

Membership in your local AOHVA affiliated club will help to ensure your opportunity to ride in Alberta.
