In summer 2017, trail groups around Nova Scotia joined the country to celebrate Canada 150 and the connection of The Great Trail. Check out some highlights in the video below! A big thank you to Canadian Heritage and Trans Canada Trail for making this event possible!
It's time to celebrate!
2017 not only marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation, it's also the year we reach 100% national connection of the Trans Canada Trail. August 26 is a day to celebrate connection and to thank our generous, devoted and fun-loving volunteers, partners and donors for their hard work in connecting The Great Trail across Canada.
Here is the detailed list of events taking place across Nova Scotia:
