There are funds available for municipalities and trail associations to celebrate their trails as part of the Canada 150 Celebrations on The Great Trail program.

DEADLINE: May 19, 2017

Eligible Qualified Applicants Include:

  • 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 who either build, manage or operate sections of The Great Trail (municipalities who border the trail but have no responsibility for their section of The Great Trail will not be considered).
  • Both groups on the main spine and groups on the spur trails linking to The Great Trail are considered eligible to apply.

The Government of Canada is providing this funding through the Canada 150 Fund. Through the Fund, the government supports local, regional and Canada-wide activities designed to give Canadians across the country an opportunity to join in the celebrations, and to make 2017 an unforgettable year.
