Trans Canada 

The idea of creating a bikepacking specific route that crosses Canada is currently in-the-works. Please note that this is different from the newly established 'Great Trail' (formerly known as the 'Trans Canada Trail'), a route that is not conducive to cycling from coast-to-coast. Learn more about their efforts here.
