The inspiring film follows the historic 150-day, 25,000km expedition around Canada’s coastline, from Toronto, Ontario to Victoria, British Columbia via the Northwest Passage. A panel discussion and Q&A follow the film.

A signature project for Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, the Canada C3 expedition explored Canada’s past, present and future. Experience the journey through this documentary film and learn about the people and places that make up Canada' diverse coastlinethe longest in the world. Canada C3 - Canada Coast to Coast to Coast delivers emotional, powerful and inspiring messages about science, the environment, truth & reconciliation, youth engagement, diversity and inclusion, all key components in building a better Canada and a better world. Through these lenses, this epic journey served to better connect and deepen understanding amongst diverse Canadians as they shared their stories of community, place, and culture.

Involved in the 15 legs of the expedition was a group of over 400 participants including the Prime Minister of Canada, and millions around the world who participated virtually. C3 is a journey of hope that reinforces how, when we all paddle in the same direction, we can get where we want to go.
