The development of the Okanagan Rail Trail is now one step closer to completion thanks to a $100,000 investment by TD Bank Group. The trail will be one of more than 150 initiatives supported through the year-long TD Common Ground Project, which will leave a legacy of vibrant and resilient green spaces for communities to enjoy across Canada, in recognition of Canada’s 150th anniversary.

“TD is committed to contributing to livable and healthy communities and improving their quality of life in a lasting way,” said Dale Safinuk, District Vice President, TD – BC Southern Interior, who lives in Kelowna. “Green spaces are where communities come together to meet, talk and play and where people find common ground and connect. We are thrilled to be able to support this Okanagan initiative that, when completed, will be an important legacy for the community. The trail will benefit over 200,000 people and is expected to be used more than 500,000 times annually.”

For over 25 years, TD has been committed to revitalizing and enriching green spaces across the country. Our support of over 25,000 environmental projects, planting over 280,000 trees, our Friends of the Environment Foundation and the TD Forests initiative all demonstrate our commitment to driving environmental and community leadership.
