Jim Hayhurst


Jim Hayhurst returned to Trails as Chairman in June, 2017. As Co-Founder of Trails 25 years ago, Jim had been Chairman from 1992 to 2004. As interest in expansion of the Programme grew, Jim was an obvious choice to assess and lead the effort.

Jim’s experience as majority shareholder in Hayhurst Advertising (one of the three largest agencies in Canada), Creator and Founder of The Right Mountain and The Hayhurst Career Centre, Chairman of Outward Bound Canada, international best-selling author and inspirational speaker (his book The Right Mountain is in seven languages), demonstrate his creative and leadership credentials. His commitment to children, as a volunteer teacher in Harlem New York, as a camp counsellor and his day-to-day involvement at Trails for the past 25 years, ensure that Trails is in good hands.
