About the Organization

The Bruce Trail Conservancy is one of Ontario’s largest land trusts and the steward of Canada’s longest marked footpath – the Bruce Trail. We are driven by a vision of securing the Bruce Trail within a permanently protected natural corridor along the Niagara Escarpment. We responsibly connect people to nature, and actively restore and care for land within the Niagara Escarpment UNESCO World Biosphere. We are a member-driven, volunteer-based, charitable organization, governed by a 19-member Board of Directors. Working with each of the nine Bruce Trail Clubs, we are committed to caring for the Bruce Trail and to preserving land along its route.

We value and welcome diversity and aim to be an accessible and inclusive community that honours, respects, and reflects the various ways people connect with the Bruce Trail and the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
