Destination Canada Adds New Experiences

Destination Canada is welcoming two new members to the Canadian Signature Experiences collection from across Canada.

The Canadian Signature Experiences is a curated collection of over 200 extraordinary and authentically Canadian travel experiences. As diverse as the country itself, these unique experiences are offered from coast to coast to coast and provide an introduction to the best Canada – and Canadians – has to offer.

Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie, noted that: “Tourism is an important economic driver and I’m am pleased to see the quality and the creativity of our Canadian tourism industry. Today, I am glad to introduce Guided Adventures by SkiBig3 and Baffin Island Jewel of the High Arctic by One Ocean Expeditions as the latest inclusions in the Canadian Signature Experiences collection.”

The Minister added: “These diverse experiences show travellers from around the world new ways to explore Canada, whether from a ship in the High Arctic during summer, or on skis, traversing our iconic mountains in winter.”

One Ocean Expeditions was also included in the government of Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial tourism trade mission to China in June 2018, which showcased Canada’s diverse and unique tourism opportunities to Chinese travellers and to the Chinese tourism industry.

Said David F. Goldstein, Destination Canada’s president and CEO: “The quality experiences and activities that form the Canadian Signature Experiences collection offer visitors to Canada an authentic insight into our diverse country. They are designed to inspire travellers to consider new, often surprising adventures and locations in Canada, and we believe our two new members will do just that.”

Tourism is Canada’s number one service export, with international revenues reaching $21.3 billion in 2017. Over 736,000 jobs in communities from coast to coast to coast were directly supported by tourism in 2017, up 2% over 2016.”
