In 2017, the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) has reached its goal of achieving country-wide connection of The Great Trail. Since 1992, TCT has been working with donors, partners, governments, landowners and volunteers to create an epic trail of trails offering a wide range of outdoor experiences on greenways, waterways and roadways.
A grand celebration to mark the occasion is being held on Aug. 26, 2017, and the TCT is handing out some grants to help groups across the country put on some unforgettable events.
Eligible Canadian trail groups, partners or municipalities may apply for a grant from TCT to host a connection celebration. TCT will support event grant requests in the amount of $1,500. Applications will be accepted until May 19, 2017.
Who is eligible?
- Local trail organizations who either build, manage or operate sections of The Great Trail (groups who solely use the Trail will not be considered).
- Municipalities that either build, manage or operate sections of The Great Trail (municipalities that border the Trail but have no responsibility for their section of The Great Trail will not be considered).
- Groups on the main spine and groups on the spur trails linking to The Great Trail are considered eligible to apply.
