The Canada Is Awesome network has websites and social media extensions in Vancouver, Squamish, 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.

If you’re a fan of people-watching, you’re probably in love with the “Humans of…” pages that have sprung up all over Facebook. The concept is simple – taking a photo of a person and sharing their quotes and stories. It all started in New York and has expanded to cities all over the world including right here in Calgary. The Humans of Calgary page has proven to be just as popular as its predecessors amassing almost 10,000 likes in less than 6 months.
