The Business of Trails (Canada)

Case Studies of Five Canadian Trails

This session will provide case studies of five Canadian trails from across the country.

Speaker: Michael Hayes, Director, TransActive Solutions

This session will provide case studies of five Canadian trails from across the country, each of which is an acknowledged leader in one particular field of trail development: tourism, transportation, environment, recreation, and health. For each trail, we will review the top three policy decisions that molded and directed their development, examine how and why these policies contributed to each trail’s achievements, and consider what new policies each believes are necessary to ensure their continued success.

In addition, we will conduct a similar examination of successful policy for the Trans Canada Trail which, at 23,000 kilometers, is the longest recreational trail development in the world.
