Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland is an umbrella organisation which brings together groups and bodies that have an interest in, or involvement with Countryside Recreation including:

  • those participating in countryside recreation activities
  • local and central government organisations
  • farmers and landowners
  • providers of outdoor education
  • environmental and community organisations
  • youth organisations

The Network was established in 1999 in response to the publication of Northern Ireland's first Countryside Recreation Strategy in November 1998. It is charged with the strategic development, management and promotion of countryside recreation across Northern Ireland. Outdoor Recreation NI's subsidiary company is Countryside Recreation: Northern Ireland. Limited by guarantee with charitable status, the Company is responsible for securing funding to enable CAAN to undertake practical countryside recreation projects.

From a canoeing perspective, CAAN is responsible for developing, managing and promoting canoeing across Northern Ireland by working in partnership with a wide range of organisations eg. local authorities and the National Trust. Outdoor Recreation NI is also involved in many other countryside recreation activities, and other useful Outdoor Recreation NI websites include:
