Great People - Great Trails - June 17-20, 2012

Provincial – National Trails Panel – We welcome the Hon. Michael Chan (invited) to open our session Once again the OTC appreciates the support of the Canadian Trails Federation and The National Trails Coalition as they report on their efforts nationally in Ottawa, and across all 13 territories and provinces as they work to implement, improve and provide funding for trail development. A must-see section for groups that are project ready, require a few more dollars to get that project off the ground, or for folks who are just interested in how other provinces do trails! In 2011 Ontario informed BC about Active transportation.  Come and expose your work on the national scene – others can learn from your experience.

Regional Trail Initiatives - In this session we profile 4 projects of regional significance. All of these projects will improve regional tourism visitations, regional heritage, open regional lands for trail use and promote the regional sense of trails – networks and connectivity. This is important.  Each of these projects is regionally significant and represents a different angle on trail type. In this way the trail implementation and trail management process is subtly, but importantly, different. Learn more about how these types of trail are benefitting the region and how you may get a similar project underway in your region.
