About Explore150

As we gear up for Canada's 150th Anniversary, our goal is that Explore150 will host a community of young people who want to learn more about Canada and our important sites from the perspective of other young Canadians.

Through the use of the Explore150 mobile app, users will be able to explore how their personal narratives and experience feed into our collective Canadian identity. Sharing with others and connecting to fellow app users will enrich their understanding of themselves and strengthen a sense of attachment to places of significance in Canada.

What we hope to achieve


Explore150 serves to highlight the relevance of Canadian culture and history and to provide an opportunity for youth in Canada to explore and connect with their identity and values in an interactive way.

The content is chosen and created by young Canadian leaders who wish to inspire others to discover their local sites and engage with others in the Explore150 community. Users will discover that we as Canadians share a lot of the same values, something to celebrate as we near the sesquicentennial.
