The Shared Strategy for Trails in Nova Scotia
The first Shared Strategy for Trails in Nova Scotia was launched in August of 2019. The Strategy reflects the shared vision of the trail community, NS Trails, businesses, landowners, Mi’kmaq communities, and different levels of government.

The Trails Strategy Coordinating Group
The Trails Strategy Coordinating Group (TSCG) was formed in early 2020 by NS Trails and the provincial government’s Interdepartmental Committee on Trails (ICT). The TSCG is responsible for guiding, monitoring and measuring progress on the Shared Strategy for Trails in Nova Scotia. The group will share results and success to keep the trail community informed, motivated and moving forward together.
Membership on the TSCG is broad based and diverse and representative of a wide spectrum of the trails community.
