The Canadian Corridor Trip 2017 was organized by Rotaractors in District 7070, 7040 and 7090. This trip invited 6 Rotaractors from around the world to Canada from Thursday, June 22nd to Tuesday, July 4th.
The 6 Rotaractors were Martin and Will from Australia, Deepal from India, Emma from Mexico, Laura from Netherlands and Ernest from Zimbabwe. These Rotaractors were selected based on their dedication in serving Rotaract and their experience throughout the years.
These Rotaractors were hosted by local Rotaractors and Rotarians who opened up their homes to these visiting Rotaractors. This trip included stops in Toronto, Niagara Falls, Hamilton, Ottawa and Montreal. In addition to this, they visited unique neighbourhoods, iconic landmarks, experienced vibrant nightlife, tried different cuisines and breathtaking outdoor excursions.
Some highlights of their visit included going to a Rotary lunch, attending a Rotary Changeover, partying on King Street, volunteering for local projects, rooftop party, Pride parade, Yonge/Dundas square, Maid of the Mist, wine tasting at Niagara-on-the-Lake, hiking, Blue Jays game, escape game, celebrating Canada's 150th on Parliament Hill, partying at a museum, participating in a local art project and many many more.
In addition to these activities, the Rotaractors shared stories about how their culture, Rotaract/Rotary clubs, the service projects that they've done, how their districts operate, and their life stores.
Not only did the international Rotaractors build friendships with each other, they built friendships with the local Rotaractors in Canada and through the events local Rotaractors also built partnerships with each other.
