Little Canada Grows With Little East Coast Opening

The new addition to Toronto’s miniature attraction and Attractions Ontario’s 2022 Top Attraction of the Year, will showcase the historical and cultural features and landmarks from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia. Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.
A year in the making, Little East Coast is the first full destination to be installed in Little Canada since the attraction opened in August 2021.
Brad Ford, president, Little Canada, pointed out that: “Little East Coast is the product of tens of thousands of hours of painstaking craftmanship by more than 40 highly skilled Miniature Makers. It is an exceptional miniature representation of Atlantic Canada and truly captures the essence of this unique region.”
And Ford added: “We’re thrilled to invite visitors from near and far to come and experience Little East Coast and all of Little Canada.”
Occupying 720 sq. ft. of display space, Little East Coast is anchored by well-known provincial landmarks including the Bay of Fundy, Cape Breton Island, with motorists driving the famous Cabot Trail admiring the resplendent fall colours, and stunning Gros Morne National Park.
The destination is filled with other recognizable features including Green Gables and Confederation House in Prince Edward Island, Pays de la Sagouine and Metepenagiag Heritage Park in New Brunswick, Peggy’s Cove lighthouse and the Bluenose II in Nova Scotia and Signal Hill, St. John’s Harbour and L’Anse Aux Meadows in Newfoundland.
Jean-Louis Brenninkmeijer, Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Little Canada, said: “Although visitors will be amazed by the miniature recreations of so many familiar Atlantic Canadian features, we expect they will be astonished by the tiny cultural scenes and stories of everyday life that fill Little East Coast; we encourage them to look very closely when they visit as there is so much to see.”
Brenninkmeijer continued: “Building Little East Coast was a daunting task but we are extremely proud of the results and we’re excited it brings us closer to fulfilling our dream of capturing all of Canada in miniature.”
