Our main objective during these six months will be to paddle and portage our way from Quebec City to the village of Inuvik, located in the northern part of the Northwest Territories. If we are successful, we will be the youngest team to have canoed across Canada!
During this expedition we aim to live as naturally as possible, to connect with Nature in a way that our day-to-day lives as students has not allowed us to do. We would like to relive what the first explorers experienced by crossing Canada with a minimal amount of belongings. The use of electronics will be minimized as much as possible, their sole purposes being to keep us safe, to document our journey and to keep you updated along the way.
During the trip, we will be giving conferences with the goal of sensitizing our youth to the importance of a good and clean environment. After our expedition, we will be making a video and giving talks summarizing our trip and promoting the importance of Nature in our lives. We believe that we all need to reconnect with Mother Earth, not only to feel better and find a meaning in life, but also to help the environment as much as possible!
