The Rails to Trails project received a huge boost as Canalta pledged $150,000 to develop trails.
The announcement was made at the second annual Rails to Trails Christmas Party at the Badlands Community Facility on Saturday, December 16.
Marketing Manager for Canalta Ryan Semchuk said it was an easy decision for the company to support the project.
“We have been watching the project for quite a while and not just our ownership but the whole company is excited about the opportunity of being able to have that trail experience from the Last Chance Saloon, all the way out to the Royal Tyrrell Museum… We felt especially given the business level and the way it has been since pre-pandemic, life has come back to a pretty good place in the accommodation sector, so we are really excited to allocate these funds to hopefully push this project a little bit closer to completion,” said Semchuk.
He sees benefits to the community in the development.
“It will help with the overall quality of life in Drumheller. It provides accessibility, being able to explore some of these areas we have never been able to explore before,” he said.
“Drumheller as a destination has continued to evolve in a really positive direction,” said Semchuk. “But looking at 2023 into 2024, tourism growth has been amazing here and being able to offer that not just to the local residents but also the visitors coming here to experience a world-class trail system,” he said.
