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.

On Oct. 28, 2016, the last remaining connection of the Trans Canada Trail through Barrie was officially opened. The City restored 200 metres of trail from Yonge Street to Little Avenue to complete the connection of approximately 20 km of the Trans Canada Trail that passes through Barrie.

The construction of this 200 metre portion of trail was accomplished through a joint funding venture in partnership with the Trans Canada Trail Foundation.

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.

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.
