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.

CALGARY

Keeping Bees with the Karo Group

Most companies love to take part in fun and interesting charitable activities like United Way, Corporate Challenge and the like. But at Karo Group they do things a little differently and get buzzing about bees. Yes, you read that correctly, bees.For the last ten years, local creative agency Karo Group has been keeping bees on the rooftop of their building. When the agency moved to its current location in Sunalta, an employee asked the owners if he could have bees on the roof.

 

TORONTO

Gardiner Museum and the Ron Thom Exhibit

The Gardiner Museum in Toronto is our city’s ceramic arts museum, the only one of its kind in Canada. It is located opposite the Royal Ontario Museum on University Avenue and is part of the newly formed Bloor St. Culture Corridor. The museum contains thousands of artifacts, some dating back to the 1500s and even later. One can find pieces from the Italian Renaissance, the Ancient Americas, some Chinese and Japanese porcelain, European porcelain and English Delftware.

VANCOUVER

Free Wi-Fi Coming to Vancouver Parks and Beaches

Remember artist Douglas Coupland’s V-POLE CONCEPT that was unveiled a couple of years back? Well, the Vancouver Park Board has come a little close to realizing it by passing a motion to develop a plan that will bring free Wi-Fi in Vancouver parks and at our beaches! No date has been set but we’ll let you know when we know.
