Exciting New Reciprocal Agreement between ATVANS and OFATV

The All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Nova Scotia (ATVANS) is pleased to announce that we have signed an interprovincial reciprocal agreement with OFATV QuadON. This means that residents of Nova Scotia with an ATVANS Trail Permit will be able to ride the trails managed under OFATV QuadON and likewise for members of OFATV. This is another great step for our interprovincial collaboration, creating more riding opportunities for riders in both provinces while supporting tourism. ATVANS already have reciprocal agreements with QuadNB (New Brunswick) and RidePEI (Prince Edward Island ATV Federation). With the addition of OFATV we now have agreements with four provinces in Canada.

This agreement would not have been possible without the support and hard work of our many club volunteers, the commitment and efforts of our board and president (Kevin Lombard) and the cooperation of our partners at OFATV QuadON. Agreements like this not only add value to becoming a member of ATVANS but demonstrate our commitment to great partnership that enhances riding opportunities for our sport and members.

We look forward to welcoming our friends from OFATV when public health guidance and travel restrictions allow. We also look forward to visiting and riding the trails managed by QuadON in the near future.

ATVANS supports safe, responsible and organized ATV riding in Nova Scotia through our 42 member clubs and over our 11,000 kilometers of mapped trails. Information on ATVANS, our member clubs and how to join can be found on our website at

2020 ATVANS Lottery Huge Success

The 2020 ATVANS lottery had a few last minute challenges; however, it can only be called a huge success for the winners, our clubs and partner Honda Canada. The Honda Talon was the biggest baddest grand prize ever, for our lottery.

Grand Prize winner was Scott Ogilvie of Hants County; Scott was on the trail ATVing when he got the news. Second Prize of a Honda 2200 invertor/generator goes to Melissa Cross of Lunenburg County while third prize goes to Dennis McGee of Westville Pictou County. Dennis wins a Honda multi trimmer. Congratulations to the winners.

The lottery once again provides a great source of funding for our clubs across the province for a variety of projects and initiatives. We want to thank everyone who purchased a ticket, all those who volunteers who sold tickets and displayed the Honda Talon as it toured across the province.

I want to thank Keith Ramsey from Pro Cycle (TOP ATV DEALER IN CANADA) for hosting the draw with last minute notice. The original draw location was closed after the postponement of the Atlantic Outdoor Sports and R V show following health concerns due to the COVID-19 virus. In closing I would like to recognize the hard work of Tom Arnold Vice President ATVANS who led the 2020 lottery on behalf of the board.
