The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) and the Canadian Off-Highway Vehicle Distributors Council (COHV) signed an agreement to partner with the All-Terrain Quad Council of Canada and the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada to promote responsible off-highway vehicle recreation in North America, according to a NOHVCC press release.
The groups will promote responsible off-highway vehicle use through a number of programs, materials and information.
Russ Ehnes, executive director of NOHVCC, stated, “The mission of NOHVCC and the aims and goals of COHV are parallel, and a strong OHV community in both the United States and Canada is mutually beneficial. Together, the NOHVCC and the COHV and its partners, the AQCC and the MCC, enter into this Memorandum of Understanding to mutually strengthen responsible OHV recreation in both countries.”
The All-Terrain Quad Council of Canada, Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada and NOHVCC will work to share and distribute existing NOHVCC/COHV information, materials, products and programs in Canada and the United States, while approaching the development of new information and programs that’s adaptable and useful in both the U.S. and Canada.
