The Trans Canada Trail Awareness Project Needs You!

Summary: The Trans Canada Trail is a multi-use trail that, when completed, will be 23,000 km in length. It will be world’s longest network of trails. It’s goal is to be completed by 2017 which is Canada’s 150th birthday. This project’s plan is to raise awareness for the trail and help Canadian’s realize how important this is in connecting our country. First it was rail, then highway, now trail.

More information on the trail can be seen: HERE and HERE.

What: The plan is to create a short video to help raise awareness for the trail and to encourage donations to be made.

How: The goal here is to get as many people as we can to film themselves on a section of the already completed trail. Whether it is walking, biking, hiking, canoeing or even horseback-riding, we want to show Canada’s diverse landscape and culture! 

Who: Anyone can help! People that live near the trail obviously can submit videos for the video but people around the world can help donate or help spread this idea and eventual video, by word of mouth, or by “reblogging.”

When: We would like people to submit videos starting as soon as possible up until the end of August. The sooner the better though!

Where: 4 out 5 Canadians live within 30 minutes of the trail. Go to tctrail.ca to find out where the trail is near you!

Why: Current funding for the trail is not enough to reach our completion date of 2017 and donations are needed as often as possible. Many Canadians have never actually heard of the trail. Hopefully this video will shed some light on this important endeavor.


After the video is uploaded message GO TRAVELING the link and if you would like to password protect it, then be sure to include the password in the message. 

If you have any questions or concerns just ASK!


I have biked around 130 km of the trail from Winnipeg to Grand Beach, Manitoba and cannot wait to travel more of it. In the near future I plan to bike across Canada to raise money for the completion of the trail!

All the photos here are from sections of the Trans Canada trail that I have taken.

Thank You For Your Time,
