Shop Local, Eat Local… Why Not Travel Local?

Now more than ever Canadians are eating and shopping locally. But do you take that same approach to travel? Not only will you feel awesome about supporting communities in your own country, you’ll also have an unforgettable trip. Here’s why a Canadian destination should top your travel goals list this summer:

Canada offers almost limitless options for all kinds of travel experiences.

The different climates, cultures, cuisines, and even languages that you can experience inside Canada’s borders are countless. From rainforests to mountains, to desert-like valleys where dinosaurs once ruled (and we don’t mean the Toronto Raptors), to the most multicultural cities in the world, you can find your dream trip here.

 

You’ll be supporting people and places you care about.

Supporting local economies means more than just spending your money there. Visiting a place like Haida Gwaii in British Columbia or the Fossil Forests on Ellesmere Island in Nunavut encourages the environmental protection of those areas by highlighting their importance as a key part of the community’s character.

 

You’ll learn cool things about your country and its history.

Did you know that Canada is the garter snake capital of the world? Did you know we were the first country to build a UFO landing pad? What about the fact that we have more lakes than any other country on Earth? Do you know how you learn stuff like this? By travelling across Canada.

 

You won’t need to rely on tours.

Don’t be shy, you’re home! Since the laws and customs of the country are second nature, you don’t have to worry about them. That means you can be more adventurous, step outside your comfort zone, and skip well-travelled paths to discover something new, all on your own.

 

You can count on locals to get inside information about hidden gems that aren’t in the guidebooks.

Until next time ☺️

If you’re reading this, then you know at least one of Canada’s two official languages—so it’s beyond easy to meet and connect with the locals wherever you decide to go. The amazing thing about that (besides making new friends) is you’ll be pointed to the best restaurants, the hidden shopping gems, and the incredible off-the-grid spots that only insiders know about.

 

You won’t be a tourist, you’ll be an adventurer.

Instead of going somewhere everyone has already been, you can challenge yourself to discover some place new. Trade the overseas tourist traps for uncharted territory. You won’t regret it.

 

You’ll gain a new appreciation for the place you come from.

Think you have Canadian pride now? Wait until you see what else this beautiful country has to offer.
