Making Cultural Connections

Everywhere we travel, we are privileged to work with the people who call the region home—not just on shore, but also aboard. Regional representatives are at the heart of our shipboard staff. Their culture, language, and local understanding of life and the land are woven into our programming, deepening the connections we form as we go.

By working in cooperation with Inuit and First Nations communities, and by travelling with local culturalists aboard wherever we go, we seek to deepen our connections between cultures as we travel.

We have more than thirty years of relationships and friendships in the regions we visit. Since the beginning, Adventure Canada has worked in cooperation with communities and individuals at the most local level possible. In particular, we have formed working relationships, friendships, and even family connections across Canada’s Inuit regions: Nunavut, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut.

We are also proud supporters and grateful guests of the Miawpukek First Nation on Newfoundland’s south shore and countless hamlets, outports, and villages everywhere we go.

We travel with local guides and cultural ambassadors aboard, in every region. And we are grateful to connect with language speakers, knowledge keepers, historians and elders in communities from Tadoussac, QC to François, NL; from Saint-Pierre & Miquelon, to the Falkland Islands, to the Western Isles of Scotland.
