Access for All in the Outdoors

Partnerships with Purpose

At CLIF® we are committed to driving awareness and donating our time and money to support our non-profit partners in making the spaces where we live and play more accessible and inclusive.

We believe people should feel proud to be who they are, wherever they are - on the court, trail, field, mat, or elsewhere.

CLIF® X Trans Canada Trail

We are proud to announce our partnership with Trans Canada Trail and support the great work they are doing to develop accessible trails.

The Trans Canada Trail (the Trail) is the longest recreational trail in the world, spanning over 28,000 kilometres on land and water.

It is a ribbon that connects Canada’s diverse landscapes, seasons, people and experiences, and fosters unity, collaboration and connectedness. Trans Canada Trail is a registered charity and stewards this national trail in collaboration with local Trail partners.

Trans Canada Trail is committed to reducing barriers and creating more inclusive trails, because we believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the physical and mental health benefits of nature.

The Trans Canada Trail is a vital asset for individuals and families across Canada, supporting their physical, mental, and social well-being. People of all ages, backgrounds and abilities are accessing the Trail in growing numbers, and Trans Canada Trail is working to ensure everyone can experience the significant benefits the Trail has to offer.

CLIF BAR® and Trans Canada Trail are both committed to the importance of access to the outdoors and are working together to make the spaces where we live and play more accessible and inclusive. Clif Bar is supporting the work the Trans Canada Trail is doing to make trails more inclusive, from coast to coast to coast.

CLIF® X Nature Canada

We are proud to announce our partnership with Nature Canada and its NatureHood program to help more Canadians experience the wonder of nature.

NatureHood works to help those in underserved communities overcome practical barriers to getting into nature.

Nature Canada was founded in 1939 because of the passion and initiative of Mabel Frances Whittemore, a teacher and nature lover whose main goal in life was to share her passion for nature with others. Today, Nature Canada represents a network of over 175,000 members and supporters and more than 1,200 nature organizations across the country. Over the past 80 years, Nature Canada has helped protect parks and wildlife areas in Canada as well as connecting hundreds of thousands of Canadians – especially children – with nature through its activities.

CLIF BAR® has partnered with Nature Canada to expand the NatureHood program. The goal is to address the growing disconnect between society and the environment by connecting kids, families, newcomers, and marginalized communities to nature.

CLIF Day Camp

CLIF and Nature Canada are creating a one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive experience designed to help deserving families enjoy the great outdoors. Our focus is to connect youth from diverse backgrounds with nearby nature by reducing barriers to participation faced by marginalized communities.
