Annual General Meeting 2015

All CTF Directors and Members,

This is an invitation to attend the 2015 Canadian Trails Federation Annual General Meeting in Hamilton, Ontario at McMaster University, in conjunction with the Trailhead Ontario Conference "The Benefit of Trails" being set for Tuesday, June 9, 2015 at 5:45 p.m. (ET).  This is the most appropriate time to have our AGM with respect to the schedule for the Conference.

Please review the Trailhead Ontario Conference Programme (below) with respect to the very interesting programme of sessions, the conference registration, and the very inexpensive accommodation at McMaster University.

Let John Cushing know if you plan to attend in person or wish to join by teleconference.

What is the CTF-FCS all about?

The Canadian Trails Federation-Fédération Canadienne des Sentiers (CTF-CFS) is a national not-for-profit organization that represents the interests of provincial and territorial trails organizations across Canada. 

The mission of the Canadian Trails Federation is to enhance the recreational trails network in Canada by: (a) sharing information, (b) providing leadership and coordination and (c) building consensus within the trails community, both nationally and internationally.

Membership in the Canadian Trails Federation is open to the principle trail organizations in each province and territory for an annual membership fee of $500. Each province/territory may nominate an individual to sit on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Trails Federation. Nominations may be renewed or changed on an annual basis.

Meetings of the Board of Directors are held by conference call every second month. The financial year end for CTF is March 31st. The Annual General Meeting is usually held in conjunction with one of the member organizations' AGM.

In January 2010 the Board met in Toronto with a facilitator and took some initial steps to complete a strategic plan. The outcome was a vision and mission statement as well as three goals, as noted below. This planning process is still in progress.
