The Amazing Places program is a sustainable development initiative achieved through educational tourism in Canada’s BRs. The concept of naming Amazing Places began in 2010 with the Fundy BR. The program is now thriving in five Canadian UNESCO BRs in New Brunswick, Ontario, and British Columbia.
The goal of Amazing Places is to identify and promote significant natural sites for residents and visitors to explore in order to encourage better knowledge of ecological features and inspire a commitment to conservation. A cross-Canada Amazing Places program, with its focus on the unique, beautiful, natural sites of this country, has the potential to unite all Canadians. This country has an abundance of natural beauty, but we sometimes forget to celebrate it, and with a concerted effort from participating BRs in Canada, we are renewing that public interest and appreciation for these beautiful places.
