For the development, stewardship and sustainability of water trails, including the Trans Canada Trail, in Northwestern Ontario. 

For paddlers now, and for the generations after us.

‘It is a completion of a great vision for both all of Canada and Northwest Ontario. Canoeing, kayaking, hiking and biking on our trail confronts the visitor with a wilderness of world-class beauty, with flora and fauna that can startle ones subconsciousness and calm the mind.

On this day, we, the people of the Path of the Paddle/Trans Canada Trail,

have completed a new national monument. Bon voyage!’
