Canada, the second largest country in the world, is a land of great diversity; from the icy emptiness of the Arctic north to the vibrant metropolises of Toronto and Montréal, and from the vast expanse of the Prairies to the impressive peaks of the Rocky Mountains. I’ve been to six Canadian provinces/territories: Ontario, Quebéc, British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon and Nova Scotia. As you can imagine, I’ve taken lots of photos of Canada! Here are some of my favourite places and experiences in Canada:

I hope you enjoyed my photos of Canada and the accompanying blog posts. There’s so much more of Canada I’d love to see and experience, like spotting polar bears and swimming with beluga whales in Manitoba, wine-tasting in the Okanagan Valley, a helicopter flight over Niagara Falls, joining in the Frozen Mardi Gras in Quebéc City, oyster-tasting on Prince Edward Island or watching the spring caribou migration in Nunavut. Gosh, I can’t wait to return and experience more of Canada!

  • Wow! your photos taken in Canada is so amazing! Many nice places and foods to explore in Canada! Your post is well written! I hope i got the chance to visit there one day! Thanks for sharing this great info to us!

  • Excellent job of capturing Canada’s brilliance … hope you loved Jasper, as it is the consummate Canadian town (doesn’t hurt that I lived there for 2 years)

  • Hi Joseph,
    Well, Montreal sure counts! It’s one of my favourite cities in the world! But yep, you should see more of Canada, considering it’s just next door. 🙂

    Cheers & happy travels!

  • Funny thing how you ignore the things that are literally your next door neighbor. I have lived in the USA for my whole life yet I never think of going to explore Canada! These pictures make me think I have to change that. – Well I did visit Montreal when I was living in Boston but that does not count 😉

  • Hi Janice,

    Thanks for your comment. Canada offers an amazing array of cuisines but the fresh seafood (the oysters, salmon, tuna, lobster, scallops…) are my absolute favourites! I’ve had some of the best sushi/sashimi in my life in Canada!


  • Lovely! Those photos show Canada’s rich culture, beautiful people and wonderful places. Definitely, it is one of the best places to visit. There seems to be a lot of great things to explore in the place. Got to add it on my bucket list!

  • Absolutely love your Canadian photos! And we’d love them even if we didn’t live in Canada :-). But we don’t want people to think poutine is one of our best food offerings – we’re also known for great salmon and lobster (as you point out). Vancouver and Montreal are quite the foodie cities.
