Welcome to the Toronto Bruce Trail Club

Close to nature.   Close to home.



Volunteering with the Toronto Bruce Trail Club is a rewarding experience. You will be helping to protect the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and you will engage with people in your community who share your interests.

Our volunteers play many roles, everything from maintaining our section of the Bruce Trail to leading hikes to running special events like the Club's annual End to End. In the background are people who serve on the Club Board and its committees, manage its website, publish its newsletter, organize fund-raising events, and help build awareness of the Club in the greater community.

How to become a volunteer

Use our online application or send an email to our Volunteer Coordinator volunteer@torontobrucetrailclub.org, indicating your areas of interest.

There are many ways you can help. One simple way is to join the TBTC Volunteer Pool and you will receive an email message when volunteers are needed for a particular activity. If you are able to help just let us know, it's as easy as that.
