Regional Trail Committees

The Ontario Trails Council works with volunteers and community groups from all over Ontario. Since 2003, starting with a renewed partnership with the Trans Canada Trail, the OTC has spearheaded the development of Regional Trail Committees.

The OTC is pleased to provide links to a range of public community meetings and presentations related to community trail development. If you have any questions about the content contact the OTC.
