About Little Canada

Our mission is to evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity about Canada.  Our promise is to create a uniquely Canadian experience of a vast land with a small-town feel.

Little Canada is a vast, highly detailed and animated journey through Canada in miniature.  This permanent attraction will open in summer 2020 in the heart of downtown Toronto, in a 50,000 square foot facility. Our goal is to be a top 10 attraction in Toronto, with anticipated attendance of over 500,000/year.

Our Big 5 Values and what they look like for this role:

1.    We create to amaze! – the astonishment of our guests is our inspiration

You understand that the guest reaction is our ultimate inspiration.  You see your contributions through the eyes of the guest and understand how to work with your team mates to create the guest experience.

2.    We’re naturally curious – we’re eager to learn

You ask why?  And why not?  You see problems as opportunities to be figured out.

3.    We are family – we support each other

You demonstrate this in the compassion and empathy you have for your team mates, both on your direct team and across the company.  You know more than just their names; you make a point of learning who they are and more about their shared passion for Little Canada.

4.    We’re better together – we bring out the extraordinary in each other

You see the strengths and potential in your team mates, and you support and rely on them to help reach your shared team goals.

5.    We’re serious about fun – like any self-respecting Canadian, we don’t take ourselves too seriously

You actively participate in and encourage others in creating opportunities for fun.
