The idea of a National ATV/Quad Association was born at the COHV National Conference in 2001 called“meeting of the minds”. The difficulty in moving the idea forward at that time, was that most of the Provincial rider federations were in their infancy and lacked the financial strength to move the idea forward!
In October 2004 I contacted The Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Distributors Council – COHV and got a list of contacts: Rick Noseworthy-NL, Ray Gouthro-NS, Jacques Poirier-NB, Danny Gagnon-Que, John Broderick-Ont, Bob Smith-Alta, Pat McHugh-BC and we spent thousands of telephone hours building the framework of what is now known as AQCC. On October 06, 2006 almost 2 years to the day, AQCC was incorporated and I would like to thank the above members for their dedication in making this happen.
The 7 delegates mentioned above share a passion to unite the common goals and help the rider federations to build strength through sharing ideas and relationship building.
