Canada – Rideau Canal

The art of travel these days extends far beyond checking off sights on a bucket list. Visitors are looking for experiences that entice, challenge and immerse. As the world becomes ever closer thanks to technology and the ease of transportation, real life and experiencing local culture are merging into a new type of adventure with endless possibilities.

Looking for a career change and place to explore your passion? What better way to reorient your life than in a different city or country?
