About the Provincial Trail Strategy Review
In 2013, the BC Government adopted the Trails Strategy for British Columbia which provides the framework, principles, and guidance necessary to develop a world class trails system for BC.
One of the actions in the strategy was to establish a Provincial Trails Advisory Body (PTAB) to provide advice on the implementation of the Trails Strategy. The PTAB is a working group with representatives from government and the non-profit outdoor recreation sector. It is co-chaired by Recreation Sites and Trails BC (RSTBC) and the Outdoor Recreation Council of BC (ORC).
Recreation Sites and Trails BC and the Provincial Trails Advisory Body (PTAB) began a formal review of the Trails Strategy in 2019 to ensure the continued relevance of the strategy to recreationists, communities, First Nations, tourism proponents, and the province as a whole. So far, the review has involved targeted stakeholder interviews – as well as broad public input – which has been solicited through an online survey. More engagements are planned this summer and the PTAB is expected to make its recommendations to government at the end of this year.
