Canada is recognized as one of the most progressive and inviting countries in the world, a country that protects gay and lesbian rights, and where same-sex couples can legally marry. Built on acceptance, Canada is a country that embraces, encourages, and supports diversity.
Canada truly is a diverse country, where you can find amazing offerings of both urban and outdoor activities. Our cities are among the world's most multicultural, and play host to some of the best gay and lesbian film festivals, sporting events, theatre, special events, and pride celebrations in North America. And our gay villages and communities welcome you with an array of shopping and culinary experiences that will keep you coming back for more.
Our outdoor activities are second to none, and have offerings for every traveller whether your call is rafting, skiing, or hiking. And our touring and sightseeing options are endless, from the icebergs and powdery beaches of Atlantic Canada, to the open skies of the prairies, to the towering mountains in the West.
So whether you come here to relax, get married, experience our true nature, or party, you can be sure you'll enjoy your time in Canada.
