In line with Travel and Connectivity Week at Expo 2020 Dubai, the Canada pavilion unveiled its outdoor exhibition on Monday featuring the country’s vast network of heritage places and natural parks.
In partnership with Parks Canada, the exhibit highlights the nation’s breathtaking landscapes and wide-open spaces, and vibrant cities with diverse and inclusive experiences.
Parks Canada manages 174 national historic sites, 47 national parks, five national marine conservation areas and one national urban park. Visitors to the exhibition are able to get a glimpse of some of Canada’s 450,000 square kilometers of possibilities for adventure, right from the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai.
Travel and Connectivity Week focuses on reshaping tourism in balance with the natural world, on redesigning mobility for more connected societies, and on how to create a digital world that is safe, inclusive and accessible. “The last two years have brought unprecedented changes to our way of living and highlighted the importance of spending time outdoors on our well-being. Connecting with nature has proven its benefits on our physical and mental health. This exhibit is a showcase of Canada’s abundant natural beauty, secluded lakes and forests, mountains and glaciers from coast to coast,” said Marie-Geneviève Mounier, commissioner general, Expo 2020 Dubai.
Canada is one of the most multicultural countries in the world, with clean and friendly cities, world-class universities, as well as business and job opportunities for many who choose to visit, study and immigrate.
Canada’s Expo 2020 theme, The Future in Mind, serves as a platform to promote opportunities for trade, investment, education, tourism and immigration, from across Canada’s provinces, territories and cities, and throughout all sectors of society.
The country’s participation highlights Canadian leadership in key sectors, including artificial intelligence, robotics, education, digitization, telemedicine, clean technology, agriculture, health sciences, aerospace and more. Canada’s approach to Expo 2020 Dubai is inspired by its core values of diversity, inclusion, human rights and gender equality as the foundation to building a prosperous and inclusive nation capable and intent on offering solutions to global challenges.
