Vancouver, BC, Feb. 4, 2016: Destination Canada (DC) is pleased to announce the addition of 10 new members to the Canadian Signature Experiences (CSE) collection. As diverse as Canada itself, the unique experiences include exploring heritage rivers and routes, wilderness training and excursions, cycling tours and mountain climbing, unique accommodations—and even learning how to play hockey like a Canadian.
The Canadian Signature Experiences collection showcases the rich diversity of Canada’s landscape, people and culture through innovative travel experiences travellers of all ages can enjoy. It introduces visitors to the many extraordinary travel experiences that Canada and Canadians have to offer, from urban gems to wilderness adventures.
“Canada has so many exciting travel and tourism opportunities to offer Canadians and the world,” says the Honourable Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism. “This unique collection shows off Canada’s rich tapestry of experiences to visitors from around the world while supporting local jobs and the economy.”
“Our work with our provincial and territorial partners on the Canadian Signature Experiences collection helps position Canada as a top destination to visit, enjoy, share and recommend,” says David F. Goldstein, DC president and CEO. “By adding new members to this curated collection of experiences, we continue to enrich the story of Canada for our international visitors.”
The 10 new Canadian Signature Experiences are welcome additions to a curated collection of almost 200 across the country. Each has been chosen for the exceptional way it connects visitors to Canadians, our geography and rich cultural heritage.
Since the program’s inception, CSE has grown to 196 members that offer experiences from coast to coast to coast. DC works in partnership with all 13 Canadian provincial and territorial marketing organizations to build and maintain CSE members. The program brings to the global stage Canadian experiences that are memorable and authentic—able to shift travellers’ perceptions about Canada so they view it as a destination to keep exploring.
