Adventure Canada believes strongly in the importance of social and environmental sustainability and has long been committed to the practice of responsible travel.
We continue to reaffirm our approach to conscientious operations, by committing to make sustainable business choices whenever possible, and encouraging our partners to do the same.
Over the course of our history we have proudly been involved in carefully selected regional, nation-wide and international efforts aiming to make our world a better place.
In 1996 Adventure Canada established our Discovery Fund to strengthen sustainable initiatives and projects in the regions we travel.
The Discovery Fund is under the umbrella of Adventure Canada’s Responsible Business Practice Policy. The Discovery Fund is supported by a fee, $250 per Adventure Canada traveller, added to our tour cost. The Discovery Fund directly assists local and national organizations involved with social and economic community development along with environmental and wildlife preservation. Each year our support extends to both high profile and grassroots ventures.
In recent years Adventure Canada and the Discovery Fund have been active supporters of the following key organizations: Project North, Torngat National Parks Clean-Up Project, Atlantic Whales, Unikkausivut, National Inuit Youth Council, The Walrus Foundation, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami and the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, among many others.
