Towards a Provincial Cycling Strategy - in 2011 the Ontario Ministry of Transportation initiated a cycling data collection project.  The intent of the project was to gather best practice information from both within the province and around the world on the various considerations that need to be taken into account should Ontario wish to develop a provincial cycling route network.  The project also collected data on bicycle route networks across the province, such as selected municipal and tourism focused routes, in order to get a better understanding of where people are currently cycling for recreational purposes. In this session the ministry will discuss some of the best practices learned through the completion of this project.

Ontario Trails Council AGM – a working luncheon that will process the annual business of the OTC.  Join the Ontario Trails Council today! Have a vote. Make your input count.

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.
