Everyone who travels want to experience the country they are visiting as a local and that is exactly what the Canadian Tourism Commission is aiming for with their new website and app - Explore Canada Like A Local (ECLAL).
The information is crowd sourced, from both local experts and travelers. If you don’t know where you want to start your travels in Canada it breaks it down into regions; Western, Central, Northen and Atlantic Canada. If you do know where you want to go you can pinpoint the city or activities you are looking for. You can explore by; arts & culture, city breaks, culinary, luxury, outdoors. If you know what you like, but not sure where in Canada to do it, check out the themes to assist you futher. You can compile your 'Canadian Bucket List’ and knock them off as you cross the country. There is also a share function allowing you to add your advice to other travelers. We’ve just started playing around on the site and it really does have a lot to offer.
