The People that Make up the Canada C3 Expedition

The Canada C3 expedition is driven by powerful connections between people who wouldn't otherwise meet. Throughout the journey, people forged friendships and relationships that will outlast the expedition. Each day on the ship was different, but it was always shaped by the people both on board and in the communities we visited from coast to coast to coast.

Knowing that participants who join the journey will be the eyes and ears for Canada, we launched a national call for applications for Journey Participants, Youth Ambassadors and visual artists in March 2017. The response was overwhelming — we received nearly 5,000 applications from every province and territory, truly representing the diversity of Canada.


Our final goal was to mobilize a cross-section of Canadians to become part of the Canada C3 voyage, including scientists, artists, Indigenous Elders, historians, community leaders, youth, journalists and educators.

Canada C3 participants opened their minds to new perspectives, participated in an engaging conversation about the Canada of tomorrow and shared their stories with people from coast to coast to coast.
