Signature Experiences

Canadian Signature ExperiencesWhen you travel, whether it’s for business or leisure, what do you hope for most? Destination Canada set out to find out. What they discovered is that travellers from around the world are wanting to explore and live a life that’s less ordinary.

This is why the Signature Experiences Collection was born! This collection features once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences found in Canada, that showcase what our country is all about.

Not only is Ottawa an exceptional convention hosting destination, with our help you can incorporate signature experiences into your companion and guest programs.
