Temperatures are rising! With the first day of summer around the corner, here is a short list of must do’s for a true Canadian summer.

  1. Visit a local farmers markets or go fruit picking
    Skip the middleman and buy your produce straight from the source. Truly fresh and delicious, buying local supports our Canadian farmers and economy. Better yet, throw on a sunhat and make your way down to a farm. Many have pick-your-own options throughout the season.
  2. Try Canoeing
    Whether you choose to row down a river or leisurely fish, this Canadian classic never disappoints. There are rental opportunities across the country, so no excuses!
  3. Be wow-ed at a Pow Wow
    Experience the spectacular dances, food, music and art of the different tribes that make up the First Nations. These communities are an important part of this lands history. It is imperative that we do everything in our power to keep their traditions & culture alive.

  5. Enjoy cottage season
    Picture this. It is a warm summer night and you are curled up in a muskoka chair. You take a sip of your cool beer and look up at the sky. You hear your friends laughing in the background and smell the makings of a smore. You will join them in a minute, but for now all you can think is how spectacular the stars look. Was there always this many?
