Destination Canada is excited to announce the addition of five new members to the Canadian Signature Experiences collection from across Canada.
The Canadian Signature Experiences are a curated collection of over 200 once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences that show international travellers what Canada – and Canadians – is all about.
From exploring Vancouver Island’s backroads and ancient rainforests in a Jeep, to encountering Newfoundland and Labrador’s historic communities, the five new members span the entire country, highlighting the diverse and extraordinary adventures available throughout Canada.
The five new members are:
- West Coast Overlanding Escape by Hastings Overland, British Columbia
- Aurora Village ViTeepee Experience by Aurora Village, Northwest Territories
- Newfoundland Circumnavigation by Adventure Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador
- Inglewood Edibles – Made by Mavericks by Alberta Food Tours, Alberta
- Battle Harbour – Forgotten in Time by Battle Harbour Historic Trust, Newfoundland and Labrador
“From cruising off-road to sampling tantalizing cuisine to witnessing our most remarkable natural phenomena, the new additions to our Canadian Signature Experiences collection offer travellers the chance to have experiences that can’t be found anywhere else in the world,” says the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie. “The vital role that tourism plays in sustaining a vibrant economy in every community across Canada cannot be underestimated. Destination Canada estimates that Canada’s tourism sector contributed $102.5 billion to the economy in 2018.”
Canada’s 13 provincial and territorial tourism marketing organisations work closely with Destination Canada to ensure the country’s most extraordinary experiences are included in the list of Canadian Signature Experiences.
The five new Canadian Signature Experiences were chosen for their unparalleled insight into Canada’s welcoming people, wonderous nature, and rich, diverse culture.
“Our Canadian Signature Experiences collection offers something special for every type of traveller,” says David F. Goldstein, Destination Canada’s President and CEO. “They are designed to offer, not just bucket-list experiences, but unforgettable adventures that promise to transform visitors to Canada and inspire them to consider new ways of exploring our country.”
