Canada’s history was forged by pioneers and trailblazers. Nation builders. People of the same vision and character as many of today‘s leaders, families, businesses and foundations, who are connecting the Trans Canada Trail for all Canadians. This year, the Trans Canada Trail welcomed five new leaders as donors to its Chapter 150 Campaign. By committing a minimum of $500,000 in support of the TCT, these modern-day nation builders have helped the Trail reach a connection level of 75 per cent nationwide. But there is still much more to do in order to achieve connection by 2017.
William J. Doyle
President and Chief Executive Officer, PotashCorp
"At PotashCorp, we have a strong connection to the land – through the essential nutrients we produce for farmers, who use our products to help grow healthy, nutritious food. Our potash, nitrogen and phosphate products are transported to more than 40 countries around the world, but at the heart of our company is the land, and what it can grow.
The Trans Canada Trail is an important part of enjoying our natural environment and building our sense of community. For these reasons, PotashCorp is pleased to play a role in extending the Meewasin Valley Trail to connect the City of Saskatoon to an outstanding national historic site – Wanuskewin Heritage Park.
Saskatchewan is such a beautiful province, and we are proud to invest in completing this portion of the Trans Canada Trail. We look forward to celebrating a Trail that connects Canadians from coast to coast to coast by 2017."
