Colour the Trails

Building Sustainable Communities

In: Community >

Colour the Trails Advocacy Inc. is a Canada-wide organization focused on improving access to outdoor activities for BIPoC and 2SLGBTQIA+ adventurers. Through our programming and initiatives, we aim to build awareness, dismantle barriers and create accessible opportunities for participation.

We recognize that access to the outdoors has historically been limited for BIPoC and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities due to knowledge, financial and/or cultural barriers. Colour the Trails addresses these challenges by providing affordable access to outdoor activities through introductory events, clinics and mentorship programs. Where possible, we provide need-based financial support for those who may face financial barriers to participate.

We are committed to working with BIPoC and 2SLGBTQIA+ leaders and allies to ensure that Colour the Trails is reflective of and responsive to the needs of the communities we aim to serve. Our hope is that the Colour the Trails will be a catalyst for change in the outdoors industry, helping to make it a more inclusive and welcoming space for all.

Founder Judith Kasiama is an athlete, community activist, disruptor, and content creator who resides on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.

Through her work Judy highlights her experience as a black woman that skis, rides mountain bikes, hikes, camps, climbs, and explores. Judy’s active participation in the outdoors brings to light the importance of representation. Through conversation and grace her work draws attention to underrepresented minorities by changing the narrative that people of colour are not active participants in the outdoors.
