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!

The Alberta Story – More Than Oil and Cowboys
Alberta became a province of Canada on September 1, 1905, after a rather quick increase in population through immigration. The land of Alberta is diverse in its qualities and is divided into three natural regions (physiographic regions): Cordillera (Western Mountain Region) is a small section in the southwest of the province, Interior Plains is the majority of the land, and the Canadian Shield takes up a northeastern slice at the border of Saskatchewan. This diversity in the land features, along with it having the largest deposits of oil and natural gas in the country, make it a popular destination for living and visiting for Canadians and international travellers.
