The Canadian Paralympic Committee has teamed up with a group of Canadian travel retailers to announce a new program that highlights Canada’s accessible travel experiences.
The program, called “Go Canada”, offers travel products and trips, including accessible travel experiences for people with various needs. A portion of sales made from its main website will be donated to the Canadian Paralympic Committee.
The announcement, which also included Paralympian Joanne Kelly, took place on the Columbia Icefield at the unveiling of a fully accessible “Go Canada” branded Ice Explorer vehicle. The vehicle is part of the Columbia Icefield Glacier Experience, which takes visitors on a 90-minute tour onto the surface of Athabasca Glacier, and is one example of the accessible travel experiences available in Canada.
