The Great Trail of Canada is the world’s longest network of recreational multi-use trails, and Canadians are rightly proud of this accomplishment. The Trail’s journey, however, is just beginning, and our collective mission now is to secure its legacy for generations to come.
Trans Canada Trail (TCT) continues with its multi-year campaign, Deeply Connected. Its purpose is to encourage Canadians and visitors to discover the depth and richness of the Trail, and to foster investment to protect and enhance the hundreds of trails that create the cross-Canada network.
Over the past year, TCT has worked with donors, supporters and volunteers to develop new Trail sections and support existing ones, to convert roadways to greenways where possible, and to support the repair of damage caused by natural disasters.
Generous donations have empowered TCT to provide funding to 76 Trail improvement projects in 2018, including the following:
A new greenway at the Colinton Bridge along the Athabasca Landing Trail, Alberta
The construction of a new bridge along the Jackson Creek Trail, Ontario
The creation of a new Trail section at the confluence of the Mackenzie River and the Great Bear River in Tulita, Northwest Territories
Canadians have truly embraced The Great Trail of Canada. We are confident that, with the tireless efforts of our supporters, this national treasure will continue to be a point of pride for future generations.
