A Strategy for the Credit Valley Trail 

Developed over the course of two years (2015-2017) and approved by the Credit Valley Conservation Board in December 2017, the Credit Valley Trail Strategy establishes the collaborative vision, mission and values of the Credit Valley Trail.  It defines our shared goals and priorities for the next 25 years and provides a framework for measuring our progress and shared success. The CVT Strategy will underpin all future planning, design and management decisions for the trail.
