The County of Simcoe will spend almost $350,000 to help 13 projects throughout Simcoe County under the Trails Connecting Communities Program (TCCP). This 50/50 cost sharing scheme provides up to $30,000 per project to expand, create, and/or enhance the extensive network of trails across Simcoe County.

Since the program was established in 2009, more than $2.7 million has been used to complete 119 trail and active transportation projects across all 16 member municipalities.

“These funds will enhance and expand our developing multi-use trails network to promote environmentally friendly links between our communities, as well as providing safe and accessible ways for residents and visitors to relax, unwind and exercise,” said Warden George Cornell.

To qualify, projects must enhance an existing trail or establish a key trail linkage to improve network connectivity and improve trail accessibility for people with disabilities in accordance with applicable provincial standards.

Projects in the following municipalities are eligible to receive 2022 TCCP funding:

  • Bradford West Gwillimbury
  • Clearview
  • Collingwood
  • Essa
  • Innisfil
  • Midland
  • New Tecumseth
  • Oro-Medonte
  • Ramara
  • Severn
  • Springwater
  • Tay
  • Tiny
  • Wasaga Beach
