K and P gets Canada 150 funds for Trail Extension
Frontenac County's plan to further extend the K&P Trail is to receive federal support as part of the nation's 150th anniversary.
The county is to receive $247,000 from the federal government's Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program for the extension of the trail from Tichborne to Sharbot Lake.
Announced in May, the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program provided $150 million over two years to regional projects across the country. Projects in southern Ontario qualified for more than $44 million through FedDev Ontario.
Frontenac County's K&P Trail application was one of 380 approved projects out of the more than 1,100 applications the agency received.

Planning has begun for Trailhead Ontario 2106. Our hosts are Renfrew County and Ontario Highlands Tourism Organization. Both are long time Ontario Trails Council supporters, and Jason Davies from Renfrew sits on the OTC Board of Directors. The OHTO has been a long time partner with trails running such campaigns as the:

‘Tourism Starts with You’ Campaign

Exploring County Trails
The ‘Tourism Starts with You’ campaign is designed to bring the local community together to identify why Ontario’s Highlands is one of the premiere travel destinations in the province.
The campaign will ask the question, “what are the best things to see and do in the area”, and tourism operators, residents, former visitors, and the like will be able to submit their ideas to the OHTO’s website, and social media channels, such as Facebook and Twitter. This campaign will be promoted online and through local media, and a grand prize will be offered to encourage submissions.
This campaign will run into the summer, and may extend to the end of 2011 based on its popularity and success. When the campaign is completed, the OHTO will have an increased online audience, as well as heightened knowledge of what destinations are most valued by the local population. This can assist with future promotions.
