Road Trip Canada | Our 150-Day Schedule

One of my favourite ways to travel is by road and it doesn’t get much more epic than a 150-day road trip across Canada to celebrate the country’s 150th by visiting every drivable province and territory to create a web documentary about what makes Canada the great nation that it is while showcasing some of the countries top iconic attractions and landscapes. This is a multimedia adventure spread across this website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. We’ll also be hosting some meet-ups along the way and doing giveaways for you to come join us on an adventure.

If you’re looking to follow along and/or meet us somewhere along the way, you can find our schedule below. It is subject to change and we’re not going to list every activity as we want them to be a surprise. However, you’ll get a fairly solid idea of what provinces and cities we’ll be in throughout the year. Come say hi! [Read more…]

Canada’s Road to 150

Canada's Road to 150

If you haven’t heard yet, my team and I are producing Canada’s Road to 150, which is one of the biggest #Canada150 campaigns of the year. The Road to 150 is a 150-day nationwide multimedia road trip celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday by exploring the uniqueness of this country provincially and collectively while answering the question; What makes Canada special?

We will drive to and through every province and territory (except Nunavut as there are no roads), showcasing Canada’s natural beauty and regional attractions while interviewing Canadians of all cultures and backgrounds. Our aim is to dig deep into what makes Canada such an incredibly inspiring country while showing off the best of Canada’s tourism to Canadians and to the world.

It has taken an insane amount of work to pull this off. It didn’t help that the idea came to me just after Christmas either as I had just missed the deadline for #Canada150 grants. However, after emailing over 200 companies to find a suitable sponsor for the campaign, Best Western decided to support us. Best Western is the perfect sponsor for a campaign like this, as they have hotels all across the country and all across the world. For anyone going on a road trip, they’re conveniently located in almost every province and territory in Canada. Without Best Western, this campaign wouldn’t have happened. [Read more…]
