About OANS

Welcome to the Orienteering Association of Nova Scotia. We are a non-profit

Provincial Sport Organization dedicated to developing orienteering in the

province of Nova Scotia. Whether you are a beginner or advanced orienteer we

have courses and events set up around the province to test your ability and/or

have some family fun in the outdoors.

We run different types of events which can include Point to Point, Score

Orienteering, Rogaine (at least 4 hours in duration), and night Orienteering. Bike-

Orienteering, Ski/Snow Shoe Orienteering events are also held occasionally in

the province allowing different types of active transportation to be involved with

the sport.

We hope that the following information will inspire you to get involved with our

sport and provide you with a fun outdoor experience that you can share with the

whole family.
