Have you ever been in a place where you knew that not many other people had ever stepped foot? As an “ocean nation”, surrounded on three sides by the longest coastline of any other country, there are nooks and crannies of our country that are yet to be experienced by many Canadians. This summer, through an exciting ocean-based expedition called Canada C3, along with an interactive hub at the ROM that connects museum visitors to this expedition, many Canadians will be able to experience the coastal landscapes of our country from another perspective, and connect the rest of us to those extraordinary places. Read on for more info about the Canada C3 expedition and how you can interact with its voyage!
