We appreciate the membership support of:
Bruce Trail Conservancy
The Bruce Trail, Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath, provides the only continuous public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Running along the Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory, it spans more than 890 km of main Trail and over 400 km of associated side trails.
The Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) is a charitable organization* committed to establishing a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment, in order to protect its natural ecosystems and to promote environmentally responsible public access to this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
The BTC is one of Ontario's largest land trusts, responsible for the preservation of almost 10,000 acres of irreplaceable Niagara Escarpment landscape.
Nine regional Bruce Trail Clubs are part of the Bruce Trail Conservancy. Each Club is volunteer-run and is responsible for maintaining, stewarding and promoting a section of the Bruce Trail.
Ontario Federation of All-Terrain Vehicle Clubs
A group of clubs in Ontario operated by volunteers with one goal, to provide a safe, & enjoyable trail system linking riding areas across the province. Our staff and volunteers are constantly working with government and municipalities, championing the rights of the ATV rider. We endeavour to help the general public understand that our members are a group of outdoor enthusiasts, who respect other outdoor sports, and are environmentally conscious. Joining an OFATV club gives you the opportunity to shape the future of the sport and the province wide trail system. Join a Club, get involved, & Go riding!
This past year the OTC Membership grew beyond 240 members, with over 220 being organizational supporters.
