Abstract: The Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) opened on 5 October 1991. The CAC is the operational arm of the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA) and was set up to carry on some of the work of the National Research Council (NRC) Avalanche Centre which was closed in 1990. The CAA was formed in 1982 as a non-profit society to represent avalanche personnel in Canada. The activities of the CAC are determined by the membership (about 150 members) and the Directors. The four main activities (detailed below) are run by the staff of four at the Centre with additional work completed by Committees of the CAA.
