Presented for the first time in the United States in partnership with the International Ocean Film Festival and the Consulate of Canada in San Francisco, Canada C3: Coast to Coast to Coast will transport audiences on a sailing adventure exploring Canada’s coastline —the longest coastline in the world. From Lake Ontario, down the mighty St. Lawrence River to the Atlantic Ocean, through the Northwest Passage, and to the Pacific Coast. A signature project for Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, the expedition and its diverse teams of Canadians, sailed over 25,000 kilometres, visiting communities, national parks, marine protected areas, and many other remote and extraordinary corners of Canada’s vast, beautiful and diverse country.
“A single ship captivated millions of Canadians and captured Canada’s promise. I want to thank the Students on Ice Foundation for organizing this remarkable journey, amplifying the voices of youth and Indigenous peoples, and connecting Canadians and communities all across the country. C3 may have laid anchor in Victoria, but the journey lives on in a legacy that will enrich Canada and Canadians for years to come.”
-The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
Experience the journey through this documentary film and learn about the people and places that make up Canada’ diverse coastline—the longest in the world. Canada C3 – Canada Coast to Coast to Coast delivers emotional, powerful and inspiring messages about science, the environment, truth & reconciliation, youth engagement, diversity and inclusion, all key components in building a better Canada and a better world. Through these lenses, this epic journey served to better connect and deepen understanding amongst diverse Canadians as they shared their stories of community, place, and culture.
Involved in the 15 legs of the expedition was a group of over 400 participants including the Prime Minister of Canada, and millions around the world who participated virtually. C3 is a journey of hope that reinforces how, when we all paddle in the same direction, we can get where we want to go.
“Canada C3 became a voyage of reconciliation, a unique pan-Canadian scientific voyage, and a platform for art, music, story-telling, connecting, inspiring, healing, and awakening. Canada is a young country still learning about its past, navigating its present, and exploring its future.”
– Geoff Green, Founder & President of the Students on Ice Foundation and Canada C3 Expedition Leader
