Canada offers some of the best Slow Travel experiences in the world and Adventure Canada is a great provider of Slow Travel experiences. In the last year, Slow Food in Canada and Slow Food USA have partnered with Adventure Canada to create a Slow Food themed trip Circumnavigating the Island of Newfoundland. Adventure Canada and Slow Food share a lot of the same values which make this partnership an important one to reach new people to grow the Slow Food network.
During the presentation, Bill Swan of Adventure Canada and Ingrid Jarrett of Slow Food in Canada will highlight the voyage and explore the opportunities this partnership provides to advancing the mission and impact of Slow Food.
Slow Food in Canada looks forward to attending Slow Food Nations and to represent all of the great Slow Food work that is being done in Canada. Daily updates on Canada’s participation at Slow Food Nations can be found on the Slow Food in Canada’s Facebook page.
