Welcome to AOHVA

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 all over the province.

AOHVA is a founding member and holds seats on the boards of the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) and the ATV Quad Council of Canada (AQCC). These two national associations of provincial ATV and motorcycle associations have been formed to give both motorcyclists and ATV riders a more powerful national voice, and an effective method of sharing information to solve similar problems. All Canadian provinces are now represented by MCC and AQCC.

AOHVA is a member of the Motorcycle Moped Industry Council (MMIC) and the Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Manufacturers Association (COHV). This association has been very beneficial to the off road community in Alberta as it has given us a direct line to the manufacturers and distributors of the equipment vital to our sport.

Internationally, AOHVA has a working relationship with the Blue Ribbon Coalition, the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC), and many other regional/state associations, especially those sharing a border with Alberta.

Working with all other user groups, AOHVA hopes to create sustainable multi-use trails throughout Alberta, the Iron Horse Trail in Northeast Alberta being a very successful example of what can be done.

The Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association is a key player in land access plans across the province, and works with local area off-road clubs, other interested organizations, and government agencies to retain riding areas for current and future off-road motorcyclists and ATV riders. Many of the riding areas enjoyed today would not exist without the efforts of the AOHVA volunteers.

Volunteers from across the Province put in thousands upon thousands of hours representing the OHV enthusiast in a multitude of access plans and other issues relating to the enjoyment of our sport.

As more and more pressure is put upon our sport by the extremely well financed anti-motorized groups from across North America, it becomes very important that ALL off-road motorcyclists and ATV riders become part of the solution. Membership in your local AOHVA affiliated club will help to ensure your right to ride in Alberta.
