Journeys into Canada -150: An Introduction & An Invitation
Journeys into Canada - 150
Dedicated to explorations of Canada’s offbeat, off the beaten path, overlooked and forgotten, we chronicle and promote hidden community-based narratives that reflect the diversity of Canada beyond the tourist spots and off the beaten path – stories worth telling and places worth visiting. It provides a collective voice to the many local narratives that account for our various customs and traditions that make up the Canadian experience.
Many Americans are painfully ignorant about Canada and things Canadian. In turn, many Canadians seemingly downplay Canada’s special qualities and accomplishments or take them for granted.
Journeys into Canada is intended as a celebration of things Canadian – from Tim Hortons’ to regional fare – a place to help identify and advance narratives about people, places and things distinctively Canadian.
And, this year we also celebrate a special year in Canada's existence - the 150th anniversary of Confederation. We are happy to join up with so many people, places and voices also involved in the celebration in this milestone year.
2017 is a time for Canadians to connect with each other and the world to share stories about the many ways it means to be Canadian.
We welcome you, and are glad you are here. Let’s Journey together.
