About Us

Voie Verte Chelsea (VVC) is a volunteer-based not-for-profit organization with charitable status.  We raise funds to build over 20 km of the Chelsea Community Trail along the old railway corridor. Our objective is to reduce the financial burden of the municipality and create a trail that connects us all.  Our vision is to foster a community culture, focused on active transport, children and youth in nature and a green connection between neighbourhoods.

Our fund-raising efforts ensure that you get the best trail at the lowest cost while maintaining its bright and long-lasting future   Our target is to raise $1 million through private and corporate sponsorship as well as grants from multiple levels of government and foundations.    To date, $85,000 has been raised directly from Chelsea residents and businesses. All funds raised will be used for trail development.

Our Registered Charitable Number is: 763738283RR0001
