Canadian Vacations

In this time of uncertainty and closed borders the family vacation is changing.  Not everyone feels comfortable at the thought of jumping on a plane and flying to another country.  If you still want to go away, then there is always the option of travelling in Canada.  Once the provinces reopen their borders it will be easy to jump in the car, on a train, or if you want on a plane and explore our amazing country.
