Not unlike anything else in life, we know that in order to make our mission come to life and to help Canadians become healthier versions of themselves no matter what age and stage they are at in life requires partnership. Our partners come in a variety of shapes and sizes – all equally important and all vital relationships that we as a team value so much.
Aside from the amazing partners listed below we want to high-light the instructors, community centers, hospitals, clinics, schools and retailers across the country that we work with on a daily basis to help educate and provide options to more and more Canadians on the many benefits of Urban Poling.

For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
