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.

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.
