IMBA Canada is excited to announce the launch of our new website for the Canadian trail community. Located at imbacanada.com, the site boasts a new design and interface, along with added resources, stunning photos, and more news.
Designed by Whistler-based Origin Design + Communications, the site features a beautiful home page, integrated blog, and events calendar.
Another new feature is the Near You section, a one-stop-shop for members and website users to find news, events, staff and IMBA Canada affiliated clubs, retailers, and patrol groups specific to their region.
Special thanks to Mountain Equipment Co-op, who helped fund a portion of the new website with a MEC Capacity Building Grant. The grant also contributed to the revamping of our content management system, used to manage member records.
Get more info on the new site in the official news release.
