Destination Canada’s Canadian Signature Experiences (CSE) are a collection of once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences found only in Canada. Offering an official Canadian Signature Experience can help raise awareness of your business internationally as these experiences are featured in Destination Canada’s and Tourism Nova Scotia’s marketing and sales initiatives.
An experience is an activity that allows travellers to connect with a destination by learning about the food, culture or environment from someone who lives there. The CSE program is managed jointly by Destination Canada and Tourism Nova Scotia. The goal is to highlight the world-class experiences that will increase Canada’s appeal as a destination and inspire international travellers to book a vacation.
