The 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.

In 2009-2010, over 1000 kilometres of operational trails were added to the Trans Canada Trail.
