The gift of the great outdoors: 2020 Impact Report

For many of us, 2020 was a year like no other. Your donations allowed us to offer Trail users a lifeline in uncertain times: to experience our country’s incredible natural environment, and to appreciate its positive impact on our physical and mental well-being.

With your help, we improved accessibility to the Trail, increased safety and wayfinding signage, converted interim roadways to greenways, and worked with Indigenous communities as they led Trail development on their lands.

Thanks to your generosity, we were able to support numerous projects across the country.


Because of your help, Canada now boasts the world’s longest network of recreational multi-use trails. We need your support to ensure The Great Trail of Canada is able to continue to offer great outdoor experiences for all Canadians. Your donations will allow us to increase accessibility to the Trail, repair damaged Trail sections, develop more greenways for a safer experience for all users, and strengthen our relationships with Indigenous communities.

Join us on the path ahead

We look forward to accomplishing even more in the coming years, and we hope you will stay the course on our shared journey!
