We have always thought of the name of our site, We Explore Canada, in a multifaceted sort of way. Yes, we’re exploring Canada, and providing guides to some of the top cities and destinations in Canada’s provinces and territories, but we’re also exploring Canada conceptually. We feel it’s our job to better understand what “Canada” means to different peoples who call this physical land home, and to stop writing at certain times, and to simply listen.
We focus intently on having a large library of content on indigenous tourism as well as information, so that we can ensure we’re doing our part to show all angles of this land, and how different nations of people see themselves within this nation. Perhaps most importantly, we visit places like the Native North American Travelling College to learn, and to share perspectives with our readership — to share voices that deserve to be heard and celebrated, without us speaking for them.
After spending many hours here, and being warmly welcomed by an extremely knowledgable staff, we left with so much to think about, and a clear understanding that many would directly benefit from taking the time to visit this special place.
