What’s Awesome in Canada this week?

The Canada Is Awesome network has websites and social media extensions in Vancouver, Whistler, Calgary and Toronto, with many more on the horizon. Our goal is simple: we let people know about all of the awesome things that make their Canadian cities great, despite the bad. I’m the founder of this network and each week in this What’s Awesome post I bring you the top stories from each of our properties, giving you access to the best of our content all in one place.



Michelle Morgan: At Home in The Heartland

Calgary is home to a lot of great actors. Some you haven’t heard of, some you’ve never seen, some might not even act – I don’t know, I can’t know everyone. But one great actor that I do know, and one that you should definitely know, is Michelle Morgan – pride of Calgary’s Lake Bonavista community, and one of the stars of CBC’s long-lasting drama, “HEARTLAND.”



HEART TO: Call to Artists for the 2014 Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize

Deep in the Scottish Highlands, the Glenfiddich Distillery creates the world’s most awarded single malt scotch whiskey. Now, they are looking to present the world’s most talented visual artists with an experience like no other.



Introducing the first ever 100-mile sake!

While on the Island I had the great pleasure of meeting with Masa, the founder of Artisan Sake Maker. In 2009 he embarked on a quest to grow organic rice in the Fraser Valley of BC, marking it the first sake rice production in Canadian history. It’s now also the most northerly rice production region in the world.



Upscale Après with Oysters at Araxi

In its quest to continually raise the culinary bar, Araxi – Whistler’s leader in exemplary food, wine and hospitality – has introduced a dedicated Oyster Bar just in time for the Whistler Film Fest.
