Guide Outfitters Association of BC
About Guide Outfitters Association of BC
Guide outfitters are the founders of the tourism industry and an important part of the outdoor heritage of BC. More than 5,000 hunters come to BC each year and spend more, per day, per capita, than any other visitor to our province. The Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia (GOABC) was established in 1966 to represent the guide outfitting industry to government and advocate for science-based wildlife management. Today the association continues this mission, representing more than 80% of the guide outfitters in BC, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
