Join us for Our Trails Think-tank - the new Ontario Recreational Policy and it's impact on Trails - The re-alignment of tourism destination marketing organizations and their implementation of a trail tourism economy inspired sessions on Trail Tourism - bring your RTO to our roundtable! UPDATE: We are starting this process with a meeting in RTO 7, February 23rd, 2012.  

SAY YES to TRAILS - bring your elected officials to this event. While here they will learn about the economic, health, and social benefits of trails. Teach them how to create jobs, safer communities and have a healthier population when they SAY YES to TRAILS! UPDATE We are e-mailing clerks and sent letters, we ask the membership to follow-up and enquire who will be attending from their area.  

New for 2012 – The Ontario Trails Council has developed a comprehensive 14 part, trail education program. Supported by members and the Ontario Trillium Foundation OTC will be offering on trail site education for at least one full day. This compliments the conferencing on day one. Watch the program content section for updates as our program is developed! UPDATE Day 3, June 19th will see trails training on-site. We are running our first two courses by the end of February. Watch Ontario Trails Education and Skills Development Program for dates.
