​Applications now available for fencing along Bruce County Rail Trail

September 17, 2023

The Bruce County Rail Trail fencing sub-committee will be setting priorities for the installation of fencing along the former CNR corridor for 2024.

This corridor starts at the Huron County boundary, north of Clifford, and extends through Mildmay, Walkerton, and Paisley, to Port Elgin, and southerly to the Bruce Nuclear generating site.

By way of this notification, the sub-committee will gain information to set priorities where, and if, new fence is to be installed. The sub-committee will review landowners’ requests and set priorities to install new fencing based on the following criteria:
  • Significantly deteriorated existing fence
  • Current livestock use on adjacent lands
  • Areas of impending trail use

Deadline for applying is Wednesday, Oct. 25. Previous applicants will be considered for 2024 and need not apply.

Application forms are available at:

Bruce County Transportation and Environmental Services Department
Walkerton Administration Centre
30 Park Street, Walkerton, Ontario

Or find the Application Form on-line.
