Abstract: The evolution and activities of the Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) are examined. The CAC is directed by the Canadian Avalanche Association. Three of its main facets are: the Training Schools; an Information Exchange; and the Public Safety Services. Keeping pace with technology, rapidly growing user groups, and fluctuations in funding sources, have been the primary forces influencing changes at the CAC. As well, several additional projects have been administered by the CAC are identified.
