Mini Monthly Round - Up | July
Happy July, friends!
The excitement never stops! June was an eventful month as Canadians from across the country came together to cheer on the Toronto Raptors as they won the NBA finals! And just this weekend we celebrated our favourite holiday - Canada Day! What a month. We hope your Canada Day weekend was filled with family and friends, fireworks, great food and a whole lot of celebration!
We have a few updates to share with you all so let's jump right into the news.
First, we want to thank Paul Hunter from Toronto Star and Claire Bickley from Neighbours of Olde Oakville for their features on Little Canada! It was a perfect way to celebrate Canada Day!
Things have been warming up outside and inside Little Canada as we’ve welcomed some new Miniature Makers to the team. As we inch closer to a potential launch date, we’re on the look-out for some more Miniature Makers to join our team. Keep reading below to find out how you can become a part of our growing team of Little Canada Builders.
We have also been hard at work on our Niagara destination this month and have some sneak peek photos to share with you. From Moosenstein’s Laboratory to the peaceful tranquility of life in Niagara-on-the-Lake, we think you'll be amazed!

A 25’ wide Niagara Falls, a skyline lit with hundreds of LEDS, highly detailed streetscapes of Niagara-On-The-Lake, and some little surprises, are just a few of the elements in Little Niagara that you can get a peek into. Check out the pictures to see how beautifully their work is coming together!
