Trails Strategy

Trails Strategy Coordinating Group

 

 

The Trails Strategy Coordinating Group (TSCG) was formed in early 2020 by NS Trails and the the provincial government Interdepartmental Committee on Trails (ICT). The TSCG is responsible for developing an approach to monitor and measure progress on the Shared Strategy for Trails in Nova Scotia. It will share the results and successes to keep the entire trails community informed, motivated and moving forward together. The strategy is ambitious, but with strong leadership it will guide the trails community to successfully realize its vision for trails which contribute to the quality of life of all Nova Scotians.

 

Membership on the TSCG is broad based and diverse and representative of the full spectrum of the trails community:
