Visiting the Toronto Islands

Just a short ferry ride across the harbor from downtown, the Toronto Islands in Lake Ontario are the city’s backyard. Learn about the different islands and plan to escape the urban bustle by lounging at the beach, cruising around by bike or kayak, or having a picnic.

Vancouver’s downtown is almost an island, bordered on three sides by False Creek, English Bay, and Vancouver Harbour, which encourages the buildings there to grow tall.

Driving to Vancouver, BC

Culturally rich with native history and international industry, and now with a growing culinary scene, Vancouver is poised to become the business, pleasure, and tourism jewel of Canada.
