Honouring the past and looking towards the future, Canada C3 is exploring the four key themes of Canada 150: Diversity and Inclusion, Reconciliation, Youth Engagement and the Environment.
Local heros, innovative projects and close-knit communities across the country are undertaking creative initiatives within these four themes and actively building a prosperous future for Canada. Canada C3 will showcase these inspiring heroes, projects and communities from Atlantic to Arctic to Pacific.
The Canada C3 journey is giving Canadians new perspectives, triggering unexpected connections and sparking fresh ideas on how to build a better Canada.
To reflect the diversity of our country, a diverse group of remarkable Canadians are invited on board, including scientists, artists, Indigenous Elders, historians, community leaders, youth, journalists and educators. Once a participant boards the Canada C3 vessel, they become the eyes and ears of the rest of Canada. Using art, music, research and storytelling, participants are elevating our collective knowledge and helping to build human connections.
As our ship travels from coast to coast to coast, more and more Canadians add their voices to Canada C3 through our events in coastal communities, cross-Canada Museum Hubs, interactive map, live video and more.
Through contributions from every corner of the country, all ages and all walks of life, Canada C3 has become a meeting place and platform that leads to long-lasting and meaningful connections, understanding, stories, art, music, scientific research and many important legacies for generations to come.
