We have always believed that The Great Trail of Canada’s greatness is not purely determined by its size. That greatness comes from the thousands of people who continue to support Trans Canada Trail every step of the way – even when the initial idea of a cross-Canada trail seemed impossible.

Thanks to our supporters, we were fortunate enough to be able to support numerous Trail projects in every province and territory last year. These generous Canadians are the backbone of everything we do, and we’re featuring three examples of projects they helped to bring to fruition in 2019.

It’s projects like these that will benefit from the generosity of donors like Altitude Sports. Their incredible contribution, raised in less than six months, will go directly towards Trail development projects.

We’re also thrilled to welcome Eleanor McMahon, our new President & CEO, to our offices for her first week at TCT! You’ll hear more from Eleanor in the coming weeks and months as we work with her on championing our mission of enhancing the Trail for generations to come.

As we get ready for another busy season of Trail improvement, events and fun activities, we’d like to dedicate this issue to showing just how much your support can help us achieve. To discover more about our work, check out our latest impact report.
