Canada C3 is a Canada 150 Signature Project celebrating Canada and connecting Canadians from coast to coast to coast. Canada C3 is an epic 150-day sailing journey from Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage aiming to inspire a deeper understanding of our land, our peoples, and the past, present and future of our country. Through this unprecedented journey, Canada C3 will celebrate our environment, share the stories of coastal communities, and connect Canadians from coast to coast to coast.
The 150-day expedition is divided into 15 legs that will each have a cross-section of Canadian society on board, including scientists, Indigenous and non Indigenous artists, musicians, historians, politicians, business leaders, youth, journalists, celebrities, teachers as well as newcomers, to share their stories and experiences, meet communities, conduct research, create art and music, and engage and inspire Canadians. All Canadians from coast to coast to coast are invited and have the opportunity to join the journey as virtual expeditioners.
The Yukon Berignia Interpretive Centre (YBIC) will be hosting a Interactive Museum Hub at the centre. This interactive space will allow visitors and guests to follow the journey in real time, learn about the expedition on an interactive touch screen display, experience the journey through virtual reality, join in conversations focused on the key themes of Canada 150, discover research, connect with onboard participants, and so much more. Special events and programming will also take place throughout the journey at the YBIC.
