Spanning six times zones, Canada encases some spectacular natural wonders, wildlife and people.
If you were to travel from the east to the west coast of the country (a journey that would take you 23 days by car) you could see everything from dinosaur fossils and humpback whales to polar bears and the northern lights. The landscapes are impressive and, particularly in the far north, you can find some of the most untouched parts of nature.
At the northern tip of the country, you can also find Alert, the northernmost continuously inhabited place in the world, while the Southern tip is marked by a tiny island in the middle of Lake Erie. Between these two points, there is everything from endless arctic tundra to crisp blue lakes encased by mountains and from deep, evergreen forests to wide, golden expanses of grassland.
In this country, you may come across a variety of species such as Squirrels, Raccoons, Otters, Beaver, Skunks, Opossums, Hares, Weasels, Coyote, Deer and Black bears, and that’s just those that live on land!
Overall, you could most likely spend an entire lifetime familiarising yourself with the various terrains, cities and towns and still not see all there was to see. With our projects, we’ll give you the opportunity to glance into this incredible diversity and experience some truly memorable volunteering.
