Building and connecting the longest recreational trail in the world is no easy feat, and we would not be able to do so without the support of our volunteers, Trail partners, government champions, devoted staff, and generous donors and sponsors.

With our Cross-Canada Connection Celebration event in Ottawa just around the corner, this edition of Trailtalk showcases some of these efforts.
