For much of my career, I have had the good fortune to travel around the world. Though many foreign destinations offer spectacular views and unique experiences, I can honestly say that there is no place on earth quite like Canada. In addition to the diversity of our people and inclusiveness of our society, the first thing that comes to mind, when considering what makes Canada so unique, is the land itself. From the Coast Mountains in British Colombia to the salmon rivers in Labrador, our landscape is part of who we are as Canadians and is key to understanding what we are as a nation. Canada’s history, from the voyageurs to the Canadian Pacific Railway, is marked by individuals dedicated to uniting us from coast to coast to coast. Scotiabank is proud to support the Trans Canada Trail, which will soon make history by connecting us once again.
