Route 17, also known as Chief Peguis Trail, or CPT, is a major highway in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The highway connects Routes 52 (Main Street) and 20 (Lagimodiere Boulevard). It is the lowest numbered city route. It is only 5 km long, but despite its short length, the speed limit is 80 km/h (50 mph). The first section of roadway (between Main and Henderson) was opened on October 19, 1990, and officially named the Chief Peguis Trail on November 1, 1991. The second section was opened on December 2, 2011.
The first extension routes most vehicular traffic away from collector and residential streets throughout the North Kildonan ward travelling west-east.
The extension includes features such as:
- Grade-separated overpass at Rothesay St.
- Pedestrian bridge just west of Gateway Road—allowing the Northeast Pioneers Greenway to pass overtop of the CPT, circumventing the at-grade crosswalk
- Built-in Active Transportation trail along the northern projection
The City of Winnipeg anticipates  the route being further extended—west connecting with Routes 180 (McPhillips Street) and 90 (Brookside Blvd.) and east Plessis Road and potentially the East Perimeter.
