Trail Builders of Tomorrow


Trail Training

Encouraging Trail Builders of Tomorrow is key to our continued success. As part of our partnership with Outland Youth Employment Program (OYEP) – a six-week program for Indigenous high school students that focuses on land-based training and work experiences – we offer a weeklong Trail Crew Training experience, in which youth learn in the field, constructing trails, boardwalks and picnic tables. Upon completion, they receive a certificate in Trail Crew Training. In 2022, we offered training in eight camps in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec, an increase from the previous year.

Youth Employment Program

Our Youth Employment Program creates employment opportunities in the trail sector for people ages 15 to 30. We were pleased to subsidize jobs for 67 youth in the summer of 2022. The focus was on employing youth facing barriers to employment. Young people were hired in the trail industry in roles focused on interpretation, GIS, bike valet service, bird research, trail tourism marketing, accessibility mapping and more.
