    In Brief

    Adventure Canada is a Phoenix Award Winner!

    Adventure Canada is humbled to announce we’ve been chosen as a recipient of the prestigious Society of American Travel Writers 2021 Phoenix Award, in recognition of our commitment to training, employment, and capacity building in Inuit Nunangat. Over 50% of our expeditions operate within Inuit homelands and we have a long history of working alongside Inuit to offer travel experiences that empower Inuit and grow understanding and compassion between cultures. One recent example is Jason Edmund's leadership of NALUNAIQSIJIIT: Inuit Cruise Training Initiative, established by the Government of Nunavut to increase numbers of Inuit working in the marine tourism industry.
