After 25 years, the Trans-Canada Trail is soon to be fully connected from coast to coast to coast.

The project was started in 1992. It's set to be linked nationwide some time this year.

Trans-Canada Trail communications advisor Victoria Leenders-Cheng says Manitoba is the seventh province or territory to connect their section of the Great Trail from end to end.

 

 

Manitoba joins Newfoundland, PEI, Yukon, Saskatchdewan, New Brunswick, and Nunavut.

Leenders-Cheng says a lot of their celebrations are tied to Canada 150 celebrations, so July 1st is a big day, but their national trail celebration will be August 26th in Ottawa. She says it's likely connection work will continue in some places following the August celebration.

And even here in Manitoba, there's still more work to do. Anders Swanson, executive director of the Winnipeg Trails Association, says there's a distinction between connected and complete.

 

 

Swanson says the Great Trail enters Winnipeg in St. Norbert and exits along what's going to be the Red River North trail.
