Who are the Canadian Company of Pilgrims?
The Canadian Company of Pilgrims (CCoP) is a non-denominational volunteer-run association that supports Canadians planning the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. We share the Canadian representation with l’Association québécoise des pèlerins et amis du Chemin de Saint-Jacques.
The CCoP provides information and generates awareness and interest in the Camino to Santiago de Compostela through a network of chapters across Canada and its website and Facebook page. Local Chapters provide a forum for the exchange of information about the Camino and also offer practical training and information sessions to the interested and to prospective pilgrims. The Company also issues Credencials (pilgrim passports) which are recognized by the pilgrimage authorities in Santiago..
Notice: June 23, 2016
Pending the confirmation of a postal strike, we have stopped mailing out credencials, effective June 23rd, 2016. We will mail out credencials once the strike is over. If you are leaving for your camino before the strike is over, AND you live in or near a city with a CCoP chapter, we may be able to arrange for you to pick one up from the coordinator of that chapter. Until then, you can continue to send in your orders but will have to wait for the outcome of the postal strike.
