Did you know that all three levels of government worked together in building the Trans-Canada Highway? The Trans-Canada Highway was completed in 1971 and is 7821 kilometres long. Now, with the help of ferries, Canadians can travel from St. John’s, Newfoundland, on Canada’s east coast to Victoria, British Columbia, on Canada’s west
coast. Federal and provincial governments shared the cost of the highway. They also worked together to make sure the highway would be safe for travellers. For instance, they tried to avoid crossing the Trans-Canada Highway with a railroad unless necessary. Each provincial government was responsible for supervising their section in the construction of the highway. If the Trans-Canada Highway went through a community, the local government was also involved.
