Stretching over 24,000 kilometres, the Trail connects 15,000 communities and is within 30 minutes of 80% of Canadians. However, our journey didn’t end with our connection in 2017. The Great Trail must be nurtured, protected and cherish so that future generations can enjoy it for years to come.

Until August 31, every dollar you give will go 2x further, thanks to a matching gift from devoted Trail supporter, Jack Cockwell.


Your gift to Trans Canada Trail (the non-profit organization that leads the development of The Great Trail) helps to ensure we protect and enhance this national legacy.

You support innovative new Trail sections, such as:

The Hunter’s Bay Boardwalk in Huntsville, Ontario – one of Canada’s only ‘floating’ trails!


You help to make the Trail more accessible:

Thanks to TCT donations, Trail sections like the Lake Superior Water Trail in Ontario allow Trail users in wheelchairs to enjoy paddling on this ancient route.


You empower local volunteers:

Gifts to TCT help volunteers like Ben protect and improve their local Trail sections


You help to create more greenways on The Great Trail:

In 2017, TCT donations supported the connection of greenways like the Chief Isadore Trail in BC, West Bragg Creek in Alberta and the East Coast Trail in Newfoundland!


You help us forge closer bonds with Indigenous communities, such as:

We’koqma’q First Nation, Eskasoni First Nation and Potlotek First Nation, who all worked in partnership with TCT to develop the Bras d’Or Lake Water Route in Nova Scotia.
