Ontario Trail News - tell us about your Regional Trail Committee, New Partnerships Welcomed and more about Ontario's Trails!


How is Your Trails Committee Doing?
In the fall of 2015 the Ontario Trails Coordinating Committee endorsed the Ontario Trails Implementation Strategy. On of the action plan items was to assess and better understand how the province and the OTC could support Regional Trail Committees. 

Over the past 20 years communities have used RTC's to reduce conflict, find resources and advance trailsregional trail committees survey


With over 50 committees operating throughout Ontario, many started or supported by the efforts of the OTC, we want to know how you are doing. We believe that trail committees bring the best people together to manage trails!
We also want to support your community work, recognize it and get supports for it. From members, local government and the province.

SHARE THE SURVEY!Please send the link to a committee, or a group that works on trails. If they don't have a process to manage trails we'll help get them started.

If you are a group that doesn't have a committee, or has one that could function better give the OTC a call. 613-484-1140
