Chapter 150

A story of leadership

Canada’s history was forged by pioneers and trailblazers. Nation builders. People of the same vision and character that is shared by many of today’s iconic Canadian leaders, families, businesses and foundations.

We’ve given a special name to this circle of influential and visionary leaders who will help us connect the Trail and all Canadians. Chapter 150 will bring together 150 leaders
in business and philanthropy – as a powerful
symbol of how Canadians can come together
to achieve a bold vision.

We’ve given a special name to this circle of influential and visionary leaders who will help us connect the Trail and all Canadians. Chapter 150 will bring together 150 leaders in business and philanthropy – as a powerful symbol of how Canadians can come together to achieve a bold vision.

We are asking each potential member for a commitment of $500,000 or more in order to realize the Trail’s connection by 2017, our nation’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. Chapter 150 members will be recognized and honoured in a special sesquicentennial Trans Canada Trail pavilion.

As a national treasure, the Trail belongs to all Canadians. So it is a vital part of our plan to create opportunities to engage “Every Canadian” as we approach Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Our plan provides meaningful ways for people from all walks of life and varying means to support this national legacy project. The Trans Canada Trail will be a lasting gift from Canadians to Canadians.

The Chapter 150 membership will lead the way for others to join.
