TM user "oscar" is the only user there who has clinched the entire cantch system.  He's a member here, so yes.

I have, for now. But there are two likely de-clinches later this year, with TCH main in SK moved to part of the new Regina Bypass, and the TCH branch through PEI probably moved to a new Cornwall Bypass west of Charlottetown. Like with the U.S. Interstate system, keeping up with the TCH system can be a game of Whack-a-Mole.

In bits and pieces over several decades -- I certainly didn't try to do it all on one trip. The last major addition to my system coverage was the isolated (except by auto ferry) TCH 16 segment on Haida Gwaii (former Queen Charlotte Islands), in 2016.

I think the better question would have been for the Northern Woods and Water Route...

I've probably traveled most or all of it at some point (no time right now to translate the route into its provincial numbered route components). But NWWR hardly registered with me as something worth traveling when I was in the region, much as its promoters might've hoped it would stimulate tourism.

Most - there's a few gaps you've not done, most notably across the SK-MB border.

Outside of northern Alberta, there really isn't much to speak of along the route, judging by the maps, is there.

It jumps on a Manitoba secondary highway at the border, right?

Yes every bit of it but it's taken a couple of decades......and over some sections multiple times. Up until the Antigonish Bypass opened....every time I pulled out of the driveway each morning I was on the TCH for 3 km to work. Same going home at night!
