Building the Humber Trail

The City of Vaughan has partnered with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) to complete a feasibility study to explore ways to expand the Humber Trail and connect a seven-kilometre gap between Boyd Conservation Area and Steeles Avenue West.

The Humber Trail Feasibility Study started in May 2018 and explores potential routes for the new trail. The study aims to select options that balance the current and future recreational and transportation needs of residents with the ecological functions of the natural heritage system of the Humber River Valley, ensuring the protection and enhancement of environmental features and functions.

The project is now entering its next phase and the City would like to engage the public on findings to date.

How can I get involved?

We want to hear from you! What are your thoughts on the proposed route options within the Humber Trail Feasibility Study? Have your say by:

  • watching the video to learn more about the feasibility study and proposed route options.
  • using the interactive map to explore route alternatives and provide your thoughts.
  • completing a survey to provide input into which of five identified priority projects should be constructed first.
  • sharing your ideas on how to encourage more residents to use Vaughan’s trails.

The City will use your feedback to update the feasibility study and prepare a report with recommendations to be presented to Vaughan Council in fall 2021. Moving forward to detailed design and construction will be subject to securing funding for implementation. This feedback opportunity is open until Wednesday, June 30 – we are looking forward to hearing from you.

  • The study has identified five areas within each study segment of the proposed trail that may be prioritized for construction in the near future. These areas can be built sooner than other areas of the trail because they have fewer permitting requirements, are located on land owned or managed by the City and/or TRCA, avoid environmentally sensitive areas and would be less costly to implement. 

    Help us prioritize which sections should be built first! Your feedback will help project partners decide where to focus construction efforts.
