Ontario Trails Strategy

In 2005, the Ontario Trails Strategy was developed collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders, including Aboriginal communities. The strategy laid out a long-term plan for developing, managing, promoting and using trails across the province.

At that time, the Province also made a commitment to review the strategy to ensure it remained relevant over time.

Ontario Trails Strategy

Tue, 2013-11-26 17:08 -- admin

Strengthening the strategy provides an opportunity to address existing challenges and identify new ones, and leverage new opportunities to develop a plan that ensures Ontario’s trails remain vital for years to come.

The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport (OMTCS) has posted a discussion paper on the Environmental Registry (EBR Registry Number: 011-9565) and Regulatory Registry for public comment.

In addition, the OMTCS is currently holding focused regional consultation sessions and Aboriginal engagement sessions to obtain input on how to strengthen the Strategy. Download the engagement slide deck for a concise overview of issues and proposals.
