Canada C3 is the name of a project to mark the 150e anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Its highlight is a 150-day maritime expedition across Canada from June 1 to October 28.

Teachers are invited to create educational material that can be used across the country as a complement to the expedition, in addition to joining a virtual classroom with their students.

Canada C3 Expedition (for 3 coasts) will follow the Canadian coast from Toronto, in Ontario, to Victoria in British Columbia, passing in particular through the waters of the St. Lawrence River then along the coast to the North, thus covering more than 23,000 kilometers . It will be divided into fifteen stages of seven to twelve days each.

A new group of participants will climb aboard at each new stage to bond with local communities and Canadians. In all, over 300 people will take part in the expedition. It is even possible to apply for by March 24 to get on board.

The trip thus aims to highlight the country's past, its current realities as well as its future prospects. The key themes are diversity and inclusion, reconciliation, youth engagement and the environment.

Virtual classroom

The Canada C3 Educational Program will be centered around of a virtual classroom where will be offered:

  • Weekly broadcasts live as well as 5 live learning activities (conversations and glimpses of the 50 coastal communities and 35 national parks and historic sites where the expedition ship will dock);
  • Meetings between Canadian classes that can be matched now through a Facebook group;
  • Educational resources for students from kindergarten to the end of secondary school;
  • An interactive map of the journey.

Although several educational resources are already available on the site, the organizers of the Canada C3 adventure invite teachers to contribute to the Virtual Classroom by submitting their own lesson plan by March 31.
