If you are in love with the outdoors and you have at heart the development of a unifying hiking trail, we are inviting you to become member of the International Appalachian Trail – Quebec or to renew your registration.  Your registration or your renewal is important because they demonstrate that the population identifies with the International Appalachian Trail and supports the Trail.  While protecting the environment, your registration or renewal helps with the maintenance and the improvement of the trail. 

The annual registration costs $10 per person only and grants you with the following privileges:

• Vote in the assemblies ;
• Updated infos about the IAT through the Member Journal and emails;
• CSST* : Volunteer worker protection;

You need to renew you registration every year, on April 22nd, Earth Day, at the latest.  You can put an end to your registration any time by contacting us.

Sponsor the Trail

We keep on recruiting volunteers to sponsor the trail.  Being a sponsor is a small implication but a very helpful one, as you help providing a good hiking experience for outdoors lovers and help the further development of a safe and agreeable trail. 

As a trail sponsor, you look, by yourself or in a team, after the general maintenance a portion of 5 to 15 kilometres of the trail (the equivalent of a day’s hike).  You can also look after a campsite if you want to.  At the beginning of the season, you hike in your sector, you visit your campsite, and do a little bit of maintenance.  After you are done, you fill in a small but helpful report about the state of your section.  You can choose to do more maintenance work in the trail, light or heavy, with the workers of the IAT or you can chose to do none.  All IAT-QC sponsors are covered by the CSST*. 

In exchange of your implication, you get the right to ask for a free annual passport, which allows you to use all IAT-Qc campsites for free.  The campsites in the Gaspesie National Park are excluded and the rules are the same as for a normal passport.  If you are interested into becoming a sponsor for the international Appalachian Trail, please contact us and we will be happy to provide you with a portion of the trail to look after, as well as with all the necessary information and support.
