Mini Monthly Round - Up | September
BIG things are happening here at Little Canada as we ramp up for a 2020 launch!
We are beyond excited to announce that we have found our home in the heart of downtown Toronto, at Yonge-Dundas Square. To celebrate the big announcement, we'll be holding a "Welcome Little Canadians" event at our new home on October 4th. More news - Little Canada is initiating a second and final round of investment, and we’ve hired some talented Miniature Makers to join our team. We’re also hiring leaders to help run our little country (apply inside!), and we led a Super-Structure session with Design Exchange’s summer campers.
So much to share! Read up on all this news below.
Home Is Where the Heart Is
Little Canada is thrilled to announce that we have found our home at 10 Dundas East, in the heart of downtown Toronto! Opening in 2020.
10 Dundas East welcomes 10 million visitors through its doors each year. Yonge and Dundas is the main hub for entertainment. It’s a vibrant focal point in Toronto’s footprint, and in the center of all the excitement and cultural experiences in Toronto, making it the perfect location to call home.
Own A Little Piece Of The Country You Love!
Location, location, location has been a KEY to our business strategy. With our permanent home now established in one of Canada’s top-tier public locations, Little Canada is thrilled to be initiating its last major capital raise, commencing this month. We’re very pleased to announce that this new round is being co-led by a new substantial external investor.
Design Exchange and Little Canada | Super Structures
Last month, Little Canada was invited to be a part of the Design Exchange's Super Structures Camp. Miniature Makers Mark & Nur participated in a 2-hour design and build session, which introduced the little campers, aged 6-12, to "Habitat '67”, Montreal’s unique housing structure built for Expo ‘67. Much like what we do at Little Canada, the team built modular structures that would be consolidated into a multi-level housing unit for their miniature model town.
We’re Hiring Leaders To Help Run Little Canada’s Operation
Now that Little Canada has a “big” new home at 10 Dundas East - we measured it out, and it’s a little over an acre - we need more family members to help run the household!
Welcome New Hires to Our Team!
We’ve found our home in the heart of Toronto, but the heart of Little Canada truly lies in the people helping to build it all. We’re excited to welcome to our team six new Little Canadians with great talent and big ideas! And we discovered that our new hires all have something in common - their love for Canada! Read up below on our new miniature makers and their unique affections for Canada.
