Deadline: February 28, 2021

Our club wouldn't function without volunteers. All of our volunteers are awesome but some go above and beyond to make NBTC a welcoming, productive and dynamic club. We are looking for your nominations for a volunteer who you deem worthy of being recognized with one of our annual awards.  There are three categories: Lifetime Achievement, Volunteer of the Year and Unsung Hero.  Click here to see the parameters and the nomination process. 


Due to the COVID19 province-wide lockdown, effective December 26, 2020 our organized hiking program will be cancelled until further notice.

The Bruce Trail will remain open.  When using the trail, please observe trail etiquette 

  • Keep physical distance
  • Wear a mask if you are unable to keep your distance
  • Keep the trail clean
  • Stay on marked trail
  • All dogs on leash

If you arrive at a busy trail/park parking lot, change your plans and go elsewhere.
