Dear Trail Stakeholder,
The Ontario Trails Strategy was launched in 2005 as a framework to help guide public, not-for-profit and private sector involvement with trails. The Ontario Trails Strategy establishes five strategic directions for planning, managing, promoting and using trails in Ontario and was developed in collaboration with other ministries and a wide range of stakeholders in the community.
The Ontario Trails Coordinating Committee is reviewing the Ontario Trails Strategy and are interested in knowing the key contributions your organization has made to support the implementation of the Strategy. The information will be compiled in a summary report document that is intended to illustrate the progress and accomplishments that the province and its partners have made towards implementing the Ontario Trails Strategy since 2005.
The link below will bring you to a short survey for you to outline your organization’s key accomplishments under the five strategic directions.
In addition, a Discussion Paper has been posted on the Environmental Registry at www.ebr.gov.on.ca (EBR Registry Number: 011-9565) to support the renewal of the Ontario Trails Strategy. We encourage you to submit your input and views as your feedback is important to the project. The Discussion Paper will be posted until December 4, 2013.
