Camping in Yellowknife
While travel restrictions lately have kept many of us from experiencing provinces and territories we don’t live in, hopefully that will be changing soon. Anyone who lives near enough to drive to Yellowknife absolutely should! If you are in northern Alberta, you could definitely make this type of trip. It is so educational to see such a northern climate and landscape and to experience the various wildlife and sites of this wonderful city. Whether you prefer to visit unique local shops and eateries, see historical sites, or if you are more into an active outdoors visit, this city has something for everyone. If you want to camp in the Yellowknife area, you have three main options for campgrounds with each one having its own perks.
Visiting Quebec – Recommendations from a French Homeschool Mom
Quebec is one of the 13 provinces in Canada, and it is the biggest one in land mass. It has a colourful fall with its continental seasons, a lot of snow in the winter (and heavy snow), a very warm and hot summer accompanied by a lot of humidity, and a beautiful spring with yummy and sweet maple syrup.
Glorious Grand Manan
Grand Manan, New Brunswick, is a picturesque island located off the coast of southern New Brunswick in the Bay of Fundy near the state of Maine. It is not a well-known destination in Canada, and many Maritimers have not even visited. The island is tiny, only 34 km long and 18 km wide at its widest point, but it is not tiny in beauty. It is accessible only by a 90 minute ferry ride, but once you cross the ferry, you are met with unmatched views and a wide variety of hiking trails and sights to discover!
Nunavut : The Newest and Most Northern Territory
What do you picture when you think of Nunavut? Many would say that igloos, snow, polar bears and northern lights come to mind, and they are right! But there is so much more to Nunavut than that. When we received our first posting to this territory, I was incredibly nervous. But in the end, moving to Nunavut is one of the best things that happened to our family.
Spectacular Northwest Territories

Discover Yukon – Larger Than Life
The Yukon is a beautiful territory comprised of mountains and plateaus in northwestern Canada. Still considered a frontier, the Yukon boasts a small population and plenty of untouched wilderness. The majority of the population of Yukon rests in the central plateau surrounded by mountains, providing a spectacular view and some of the highest mountain peaks in North America.
British Columbia: Coastlines, Mountains, and More
