BCMC & VIMFF present an evening with climbing legend Jim Donini, plus a screening of On The Verge, climbing in the backcountry of Powell River, BC.

For the past few years, the BCMC has subscribed to the Liability Insurance Policy available to all member clubs of the Federation. At the request of the insurer and with the generous help of Robert Kennedy, Q.C., a prominent Vancouver lawyer in liability claims from the firm Farris, the FMCBC Insurance Committee has designed a new Waiver of Liability form that must now be used by all clubs subscribing to the Policy. It is the Insurer’s requirement that all members of the BCMC must agree to this waiver.


As a result, the BCMC will be implementing the new Waiver, effective on Sunday September 15, meaning that in the club’s Membership Database the Waiver Status for all members of the club will be set to “not current” on Sunday September 15, 2013 at 10am. Specifically:

  • Going on BCMC trips: members going on a BCMC trip after this time will be required to agree to the new Waiver prior to participating on the trip.

  • Account Access: Members without a current waiver and logging-in to their BCMC account will be given the option to proceed to the e-Waiver.

  • Joining & Renewing Memberships:

    • Electronic: Members renewing their membership on-line (or new members joining on-line) will be required to agree to the e-Waiver as part of their renewal process – this doesn’t take long and is easy to do.

    • Paper: Members renewing their membership (or new members purchasing a membership) at a Social or through the mail will be asked to submit a signed and witnessed copy of the new waiver.

  • Paper waiver: available at socials or you can read or print your own copy from here: https://bcmc.ca/bcmc_waiver_read.php

  • As in the past, once you have agreed to this waiver, you will not be required to sign a waiver again until a new version of the waiver is required – typically several years from now.


We appreciate everyone’s cooperation.

Your Executive (volunteer) Team!
