10 January 2022, Dubai: In line with Travel and Connectivity Week at Expo, the Canada pavilion today unveils its outdoor exhibition featuring Canada’s vast network of heritage places and natural parks.
In partnership with Parks Canada, the exhibit highlights the nation’s breathtaking landscapes and wide-open spaces, and vibrant cities with diverse and inclusive experiences.
Parks Canada manages 174 national historic sites, 47 national parks, 5 national marine conservation areas and 1 national urban park. Visitors to the exhibition are able to get a glimpse of some of Canada’s 450 000 km2 of possibilities for adventure, right from the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai.
Travel and Connectivity Week focuses on reshaping tourism in balance with the natural world, on redesigning mobility for more connected societies, and on how to create a digital world that is safe, inclusive and accessible. Canada remains one of the top destinations to immigrate study and travel.
“The last 2 years have brought unprecedented changes to our way of living and highlighted the importance of spending time outdoors on our wellbeing. Connecting with nature has proven its benefits on our physical and mental health. This exhibit is a showcase of Canada’s abundant natural beauty, secluded lakes and forests, mountains and glaciers from coast to coast to coast.” Marie-Geneviève Mounier, Commissioner General – Expo 2020 Dubai.
