2021 Demographic Survey – Findings

Aug 10, 2021

In March 2021, the CEC Diversity and Inclusion Committee partnered with University of Waterloo PhD Candidate, Daniel Wigfield, to conduct a demographic survey of the Canadian Climbing Community. An impressive 1015 respondents took part in this National Survey, with 844 responses being deemed complete for analysis, making this survey the biggest of its kind regarding climbing in Canada! Thank you to all of you who filled out the survey!

The survey was composed of five sections:

  • Climber characteristics (i.e., preferred discipline, years of experience)
  • Motivations for climbing
  • Constraints to participating in climbing
  • Perceptions of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the climbing community
  • Demographic information

CEC is excited to share with our community the Findings Report Who is Climbing? Understanding Participants Within Climbing Escalade Canada. Specific attention has been paid to the survey results that provided insights on what motivates women and other marginalized groups to participate in climbing, as well as any specific constraints to participation these groups may face. The findings of this study will hopefully help climbing facilities and climbing organizations implement appropriate programs and activities to target barriers to participation.

CEC would like to acknowledge the much appreciated financial participation of SIRC, and the amazing support received from the University of Waterloo. Thank you!

A special thank you to Stefan Warwick for the graphic design of the final report.
