The Richardson Foundation, established 10 years prior to Canada’s Confederation, celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2007. The significance of that milestone, and that our own firm’s history is so linked to Canada’s history, made the notion of helping to connect Canadians through the Trail very compelling. This project succeeds because of the indomitable grassroots support and community volunteers; they play a vital part in promoting and building the Trail. That’s what makes it so powerful in the truest sense of bringing Canadians together. This is an opportunity for everyone to join those already involved and create a legacy gift to Canada that will last for generations. Our goal is to inspire Canadians everywhere to get behind the nation dream, as this investment will deliver returns long after the celebrations in 2017.
