Program activity: Heritage

Name of recipient: Trans Canada Trail

Start date: December 2003

End date: March 2011

Description: Trans Canada Trail/Sentier transcanadien leads an initiative, based on widespread voluntary support, to establish a national recreational trail that runs through every Canadian province and territory, linking hundreds of communities. The federal grant for this project is used solely to establish a fund to achieve the following objectives: to administer a program of grants to community-based groups in support of trail-building capital projects (thereby leveraging additional support from other sources); to provide planning for and coordinate development of the Trail; and to establish Trail Pavilions and signage along the route.

The Trail will connect Canadians from all regions of the country with each other, their environment, and Canada’s cultural and natural diversity.

Summary of annual plans of recipient:
The impact of the one-year extension of the grant to TCT has been significant. During 2010-11, the organization undertook a critical analysis of trail development in different regions. This led to the development and implementation of a Connection Plan which permitted revisions to the methods used to connect the Trail sections. The Connection Plan will concentrate efforts on the goal of completing the Trail by 2017. 

A donation of ad space and print ad design resulted in ten ads appearing in the Globe and Mail in 2010-11 to highlight different sections of the Trans Canada Trail and introduce Canadians across the country to the Trail initiative. These donations will continue annually until 2017.

During this period, TCT negotiated a new contribution agreement with the Government of Canada. The Government will invest a further $10 million through Parks Canada.

The 2010-15 TCT Strategic Plan will continue to guide actions around four pillars: Generate Funding, Build Reputation, Facilitate Trail Building and Promote the Benefits of the Trail.

An additional endowment of $10 million was approved in March 2007. Investment revenues of the endowment are used to award scholarships and bursaries to Aboriginal post-secondary students across Canada.

This Endowment Fund encourages higher levels of achievement in education to help Aboriginal Canadians gain the skills and learning needed to fully contribute to the economic life of their communities and Canadian society.

Start date: 2001-02

End date: Perpetual

Description: Thanks to an endowment of $10M funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Canadian Institute for Research on Linguistic Minorities (CILRM) was created in March 2002 for the purpose of becoming a national centre of expertise to better understand the challenges that official language minority communities face and the trends in their environment. Although it is housed at the UniversitÚ de Moncton, the Institute has a national mission.

Program activity: Sport

Name of recipient: Grant to the 2010 Games Operating Trust

Start date: 2004-05

End date: Perpetual

Description: In accordance with a Multi-Party Agreement (MPA), the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia each contributed $55 million to the Legacy Endowment Fund, which is managed by the 2010 Games Operating Trust. The Legacy Endowment Fund supports the maintenance and operating expenses of specific 2010 Winter Games sporting venues and charitable and not-for-profit organizations managing high-performance amateur sport and coach development programming at those venues and elsewhere in Canada. The three legacy facilities receiving the funds are the Richmond Oval (Richmond, BC), Whistler Olympic Park and the Whistler Sliding Centre (Resort Municipality of Whistler, BC). This commitment by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia ensures that Canadians will continue to use the venues and benefit from sport programming well beyond 2010 (http://www.vancouver2010.com).

The Board of Directors of the 2010 Games Operating Trust Society (the Society) consists of eight representatives from the signatories to the MPA (Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, the Canadian Olympic Committee, the Canadian Paralympic Committee, the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games [VANOC], the City of Vancouver, the City of Richmond, and the Resort Municipality of Whistler). The Society will oversee and manage this Trust until an agreed-upon future date or until the end of the Monarchy.

Beyond maintaining and operating the three principle venues, the Society will provide the needed funding to continue high-performance programming for Canadian athletes at these venues and elsewhere in Canada.
