Staff Tips

Toronto-The new Queens Quay makes the Lake Ontario waterfront a stroller’s paradise. Here you will find a mix of parks, shopping and restaurants all connected by the Water’s Edge Promenade. Hop on a ferry over to the nearby Toronto islands where beaches, a family amusement park and paved walking trails await.

Vancouver is one of the world’s most fortunately situated cities. You are surrounded by glimmering waterways and at the foot of the Coast Mountains. If you arrive into Vancouver Airport you will amazed by the views you get of the Pacific Ocean and the mountains.
