Trail Builders

For a project of this scope and magnitude to succeed, it must have the support of Canadians from all walks of life and every level of society. Hundreds of local Trail organizations are helping us make history and build the Trans Canada Trail.

We are honoured to work with more than 400 local Trail groups, municipalities and conservation authorities that build and manage the local sections of the Trail. The local Trail builders are, without doubt, the lifeblood of the Trail. They do everything from planning Trail routes, raising funds, clearing brush and installing bridges, to securing permits, putting up signs, running events and encouraging people to get out and enjoy the Trail.

To find out more about becoming a local Trail builder please contact one of the Provincial or Territorial organizations below.
