The uniqueness of Canada’s Québec Province—with its old world charm and new world creativity—is only topped by its renowned cuisine. While many people may have visited quaint Québec City, the culinary culture truly begins in the bucolic “Eastern Townships,” where all the local ingredients are cultivated.

Aug 11, 2015  |   Contributor: Julie Hatfield

After a helicopter ride north from Vancouver, about 45 minutes of over the Discovery Islands, a dozen of us set down at the Sonora Resort on a recent trip. This is the only way it can be reached, via air or boat. No roads mar the pristine beauty of the deep red cedar, fir, pine and spruce forests here.

Jan 14, 2015  |   Contributor: Maria Yates

Before 2015 rolled in, I took my yearly pilgrimage to Yorkville, which is, without a doubt, one of Toronto's swankiest areas. It's also my personal favorite city in the vicinity.

It means having your own private helicopter with a pilot who is as good a fisherman and mountain guide as he is at piloting. Swooping up over 50,000 square feet of pristine rainforest, when his trained eye spots a river filled with jumping salmon, he will head straight down to land on a tiny piece of terrain at a riverbed noisy with the sound of the sparkling, spawning fish. Once there, you can throw in your line and pull them in to your heart’s content.

It was my final day in Canada and I relaxed upon rattan palms at the entrance of Fairmont Chateau Whistler, which at 25 years of age is the village matriarch. As I awaited my transportation, I observed my surroundings. Encircled by the green of mountains and a blue sky above, the village to the left and spruce and cedars everywhere, it was a Christmas-perfect setting, one that it is best known for in the winter. But having gone in the summer, I discovered that Whistler is much more than just a winter destination.
