Mathieu Roy

Vice-President, Trail Development and Management,  Trans Canada Trail

Mathieu is a construction engineer, with over 15 years’ experience in the design, construction, management and commissioning of urban, rural and industrial infrastructure for environmental purposes.

As an advocate for sustainable development, he has cultivated strong technical expertise in the fields of soil, water and air, as well as in waste management. He has been involved with the construction of several roads, composting plants, recycling centres and several projects related to waste management and treatment. He has also participated in the rehabilitation of contaminated sites, mainly those of former mines.

Guided by his experience in sustainability, Mathieu leads a passionate team of Trail development managers and signage professionals as they continue to enhance The Great Trail of Canada and engage with communities from coast to coast to coast, not only through funding programs, but also by implementing and leading projects with a focus on inclusivity, safety and active transportation.

Mathieu’s schedule is packed pretty tight! He currently sits on Sentiers Sherbrooke Board – a non-profit working for the development, maintenance and promotion of mountain biking trails in the Eastern Township region of Quebec – but he still manages to find time for summer mountain biking and winter fat biking and alpine skiing in Estrie.

Mathieu joined Trans Canada Trail in 2017.
