Orienteering Canada Hall of Fame
Chris and Patricia Skene
Inducted in 2017 | Order of Orienteering Canada
In 1967, Chris and Patricia Skene formed the Montreal Orienteering Club and the Quebec Orienteering Association. In the same year, representing Quebec, they joined with the Ontario and Nova Scotia groups to form and incorporate the Canadian Orienteering Federation (now OC). Pat started Canada’s first orienteering newsletter and Chris made the map for the 1967 Canadian Orienteering Championships, one that was re-used 50 years later as a “re-run event” as part of the 2017 Canada 150 Orienteering Festival.
