Richardson Foundation

The Richardson Foundation is the charitable giving organization for James Richardson & Sons, Limited, established in 1857, one of Canada’s most enduring and most respected family businesses.  The Richardson Foundation generously pledged $1 million as the first member of Chapter 150, our fundraising campaign to connect the Trail by 2017, Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation. Half of the Foundation’s gift will be allocated over five years as matching funds to encourage all Canadians to support their national Trail.

Chapter 150

This circle of influential and visionary leaders will help us connect the Trail and all Canadians.

The Trail is within 30 minutes of over 80% of Canadians and runs through or near 1,000 communities.
