If you’re unable to climb or choose not to, there are a few ways you can still be part of WWF-Canada’s CN Tower Climb for Nature.
There is a registration fee of $25 for either of the Saturday and Sunday climbs.
There is a $75 registration fee for the Elite Climb to secure a spot for the ‘first up the tower’ opportunity.

The minimum fundraising amount for all climbers is $125 per climber.
Yes. When you get to the last step of the registration process, you will see a button that will allow you to choose to register your family member(s). If you are joining as a a group of families in different households you may wish to create a team (See FAQ on Teams).

Due to ongoing health concerns and after careful consideration with event and health and safety partners, the decision has been made to restrict the participation of the 2023 CN Tower Climb for Nature to those aged 16 and over on the day of the event, April 15 & 16, 2023.
If you have registered for the wrong climb, please let us know before event day by contacting our events team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you’ve been in touch with WWF-Canada before or you receive emails from WWF-Canada, a username already exists for your email. An email should be sent to you with your username and password reset link within one hour of completing the registration form. If you do not receive the password you can reset your password here.
Yes. You can register on the day of the climb if there are still available spaces, you have the required fundraising minimum and check in on event day before 9:30 a.m. Remember, space is limited, so new climber registrations will depend on availability.
Climbers who register on the day of the event will have to provide their information on a pledge form and sign a waiver before they can climb. Climbers under the age of 18 that register on the day of the event are required to present a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.
Yes. All climbers who register online have already accepted the waiver during the registration process. Climbers who register on the day of the event (if space permits) will have to provide their information on a pledge form and sign a waiver before they can climb.
For climbers under 18 years of age, the online form requires that a parent or guardian is there to witness the acceptance of the waiver. A climber under the age of 18 registering on the day of the event is required to present a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian. You can download the waiver from the “Fundraising tips” page. It can be printed off and signed before the event. This way, if the parent or guardian is not accompanying the climber, they do not have to be present when the waiver is handed in during event day check-in.
The best way to create a team is have one person register a team and become team captain here. The team captain then shares the link to the Team Page (found in their registration confirmation email or in their Participation Center once logged in) and everyone can sign up using the JOIN TEAM button. The team captain can also invite team members directly through their Participant Centre.
There is a $25 registration fee to be paid when signing up and then there is a minimum fundraising goal of $125 for each team member to be reached before the event date to be able to participate. We have many fundraising tips to help everyone reach their goals here.
The benefit of being part of a team is as long as the total amount raised as a group (on each team member personal fundraising pages and on the team page), divided among the team members adds up to $125 each then everyone will qualify. This calculation takes place ‘manually’ at event day registration and is not reflected on our website.
Online donations, made on our secure website, are by far the best method for individuals to sponsor your climb. Your sponsors will immediately be sent their e-receipts. Your personal fundraising page will register new donations towards your fundraising goal as soon as they have been made online.
When dealing with cash and/or cheques from donors, you have two options:
For online donations a tax receipt will automatically be issued for donations of $5 or more. Tax receipts for online donations are automatically emailed from our system. If you donated and have not received your receipt, please contact our events team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-484-7700.
For offline donations of $20 or more, you will receive a tax receipt in the mail after the event.
You can see the list of top individual and team fundraisers on the bottom of the climb homepage.
The Platinum Panda Experience is a front of the line experience awarded to climbers who have gone above and beyond to fundraise over $1,000. Platinum Panda climbers will check in to climb in the exclusive Platinum Panda lounge where everything from coat check to coffee, snacks and prizing will be taken care of. They will be personally escorted from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre to the CN Tower and bypass all lines to begin their climb.
Climbers who choose to donate their prizes back at registration are still eligible to receive the Platinum Panda Experience and their personalized climb T-shirt.
You are able to select this option during the registration process or when logged in from your Participant Centre.
Donations will be collected on your personal fundraising page until May 31, 2023.
Yes, there is a limit. As a security control, the system allows up to 500 contacts to be emailed at one time.
If you would like to send an email to all your contacts, and have more than 500 contact emails, you can divide your list and send the email in blocks of up to 500.
