Ontario Trails Strategy – this session is designed to provide the trails community, trail managers and volunteers with up to date information on the status of the 2007 Ontario Trails Strategy, and its relationship with the Recreational Framework, re-written in 2011. Trails are supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport and they have the mandate for both implementation and support of recreation and trails. Our panel of Ministry staff will lead the way in detailing the policies and how they make them work at the provincial level!
