Connecting People
to Healthy Waterways



Brant Waterways is a charitable non-profit Foundation, established in 1988, whose objective is to provide funding assistance for projects that preserve, protect, restore, and improve waterways.  The natural resources of the Grand River and its related bodies of water and adjacent lands within the County of Brant are important waterways.

In April 2019 we publicly launched our TIRA (Trail Improvement & River Access) fundraising campain with a goal of inspiring healthy communities through connections to world-class outdoor recreational opportunities that respect the natural ecosystems and promote their conservation for generations to come.

We will accomplish this through partnering with other stakeholders to develop trail improvement and riveraccess projects while protecting the natural resources of the Grand River watershed.

Please join us! Your contribution to this important fundraising campaign will help unlock the full potential of the area through: 

  • Connecting communities of Brant, Brantford and Six Nations by building new river access points that allow waterway users to dock safely and explore.
  • Adding amenities such as benches, restrooms, guide wires and docks that will increase accessibility for seniors and people with physical disabilities.
  • Funding emergency repairs to the trails when damaged by floods, fires, storms or other natural disasters.
  • Revitalizing areas in need of restoration like Mohawk Lake, Penman’s Dam and Gilkison Flats.
  • Providing mountain bike & hiking trail developments in areas that connect the community to the naturalsurroundings.
  • Ensuring the protection of environmentally sensitive areas through proactive trail planning.
