The National Trails Coalition (NTC) is the operating name for the Coalition of Canadian Trails Organizations, a federally incorporated not-for-profit organization. Its members are: Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO) Canadian Off-Highway Vehicle Distributors Council (COHV), and Canadian Trails Federation (CTF). The NTC was founded in 2007 based on a common belief that cooperative approaches and support at the national level would facilitate trail building and refurbishment activities; be beneficial to the long term sustainability of all forms of trail-based activities; and stimulate economic activity and development in communities across the country.

The NTC received a $10 million dollar investment from the Government of Canada in Budget 2014: Canada’s Economic Action Plan. These federal dollars must be matched by cash contributions from NTC member organizations or their partners.

Aside from delivering a much needed boost to the recreational trails sector in Canada, this program is intended to create jobs in the near term and a lasting platform upon which more jobs can be created in the future.

Resource Road Safety

We have received notice of a few close calls out there between snowmobilers and Logging trucks.  These incidents involved snowmobiles crossing roads without looking or driving on active haul roads without radios.  Please remember that while you are in a hurry to get to the great snow others have a job to do.  We do not want anyone to get hurt.  

Key points:

  • Forestry Roads are used for industrial use as well as recreational use
  • Recreation users need to use extreme caution when using Forestry Roads, especially if they do not have radios
  • Drive and ride defensively, always expect the unexpected

Safety Precautions:

safety, snowmobile, winter recreation, logging
