About the Trail Care Crew

Since 2010 the Canadian Trail Care Crew program has supported outdoor recreation communities by providing education on trail building and volunteer management, training local volunteer groups to work more effectively with land managers, and by representing mountain bikers’ interests to local and national decision-makers.

The IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew is made possible by support from its Program Partners: Parks Canada, Subaru Canada, and Shimano Canada. Without the support and leadership of these organizations the Trail Care Crew program would not be possible. Additional program support is being provided by Trek Bicycles.

The goals of the program are to inspire high quality trail projects, increase stewardship of Canada’s public lands, promote of Canada’s natural heritage sites, and engage the mountain bike and trails communities.
