Celebration on the Great Trail

Come join us at the Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park pavilion at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 26, 2017 as Nunavut Parks, in partnership with Trans Canada Trail, hosts Celebration on the Great Trail. Listen to a Kimmirut Elder talk about the Itijjagiaq Trail, attend an Inuksuk presentation, and learn how to build an inuksuk. Traditional tea and bannock will be served!

We will be joining communities across Canada in celebrating the connection of the Great Trail all across the country as part of Canada 150. The Itijjagiaq Trail, which runs through the Katannilik Territorial Park, just recently became fully connected to the Trans Canada Trail. Inuit have used this trail for hundreds of years and community members and visitors continue to use it for hiking, skiing, snowmobiling and canoeing. Let’s all join in the celebration!
