The Canada Is Awesome network has websites and social media extensions in Vancouver, Whistler, Calgary and Toronto, with many more on the horizon. Our goal is simple: we let people know about all of the awesome things that make their Canadian cities great, despite the bad. I’m the founder of this network and each week in this What’s Awesome post I bring you the top stories from each of our properties, giving you access to the best of our content all in one place.

He hasn’t become a household name yet, but Raghav has seen a fair bit of success with over a decade of experience in the music industry.

Whistler Museum holds some fascinating examples of hand-coloured photography. For most of these objects, the craftsmanship is far from superior; however, the fact that these photographs exist from such an early Whistler is marvelous in itself.
