Reasons to Visit Canada

  • Aurora Borealis

    The dramatic Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, are thought to be the result of particles in solar winds emanating from the sun in the region of the magnetic North Pole. The Northwest Territories and the Yukon offer some of the best viewing of this natural phenomenon in Canada.

  • Festivals & events

    Canada enjoys a busy schedule of festivals and events, the majority of which take place during the summer months. Perhaps the most well-known of all the annual events is the Calgary Stampede, a ten-day festival which takes place in the second week of July. Dating back to 1912, the event showcases the area’s Wild West roots, with chuck-wagon races, a rodeo, bands, dancing and exhibitions.

  • First National culture

    There are approximately one million First Nations Canadians today. Their origins stem from the end of the last Ice Age, about 20,000 years ago, when nomadic tribes followed herds of bison and mammoth across the land bridge joining Siberia and Alaska.
