Tip 70: Swim at Little Manitou Lake, Saskatchewan

“Manitou Beach, Saskatchewan is the Dead Sea of Canada. The mineral-enriched lake water has health benefits and healing properties. Locals say ‘even a goat can float,’ as the water is so salty that you don’t sink. There’s a world-class spa and a mineral pool as well. — Member Sharon

“It is so much fun to learn about the histories and traditions of various cultures, and it’s also great to have a taste of the community. In Winnipeg, the summer festival Folklorama allows individuals to visit many of the cultures of people who have immigrated to Canada with a variety of pavilions that have displays, entertainment and foods.”

— Member Isabel

Tip 73: Spend some time in Stratford, Ontario

It has everything you need to find peace: a historic downtown with picturesque shops, restaurants that offer delicious local food, art festivals and of course theatre. There’s also an amazing lakeshore, as well as parks, bridges, flowers and swans. It is an authentic Canadian town full of kind, lovely people.  — Member Dilek

— Member Carol
