Discover Canada's aboriginal roots

Aboriginal travel is a growing industry - comprising travel destinations owned and operated by people of the First Nations, Inuit or Métis - that aims to offer a taste of authentic aboriginal Canada. You can learn traditional fishing methods, go bear watching, shop for unique artisan gifts and items and of course ooh and aaah at countless museum exhibits in stunning surroundings.
