Trans Canada Trail    

The Trans Canada Trail (TCT) is a nationwide continuous recreation route, winding its way through every province and territory in Canada, connecting sea-to-sea-to-sea.

The trail is a non-profit, registered charity organization, with the mission: "promote and assist in the development and use of the Trans Canada Trail by supporting success at the local level in the creation of this national network."

The TCT was created in 1992 and publicly launched in the summer of 1994. It was conceived by the Canada 125 as a legacy project. Canada 125 was an organization created to celebrate Canada’s 125th year of confederation. Canadians are invited to help build the Trail by symbolically purchasing metres. A donation of $50.00 builds a meter of Trail and the donor’s name (or the name of anyone they designate) is permanently inscribed in a Trail Pavilion along the route. 

Approximately 20 kilometres of Trans Canada Trail is planned to pass through the City of Barrie. The trail in Barrie connects to the Township of Springwater in the northwest and to the Township of Innisfil in the south. Currently, around 11 kilometres of trail have been completed with the help of metre and plaque sales, representing over $40,000 in community donations.
