We received 55 amazing videos from grade 8/secondary 2 classes across the country for the fourth edition of Canada’s Coolest School Trip contest. With the support of Air Canada and Arm & Hammer, these classes have the chance to win a five-day, all-expense-paid trip to La Mauricie National Park and the national historic sites in Québec City!

We need your help to select a winner!

But first let me take a selfie.

Selfies aren’t just for people – they’re for wildlife, too! In recent years remote-triggered cameras were installed in Nahanni National Park Reserve, Banff National Park, and Ivvavik National Park, among many other places to help monitor wildlife populations. Not only does the information help biologists but it leaves us with some sweet candid wildlife moments!

Here’s Big Cinnamon Bear loving the camera in Nahanni National Park Reserve, and probably the best kind of selfie out there!

The deadline is fast approaching!

What an Adventure! Follow Mr. Boulay’s class on Canada’s Coolest School Trip!

You can’t help but want to visit Forillon National Park after viewing Mr. Boulay’s secondary 2 class’s video. From its majestic wildlife, unique culture, historic buildings and expansive green spaces, we were captivated with this little corner of Canada, thanks to their inspiring work. And by the looks of it, you were as well! The class won the trip of a lifetime - Canada’s Coolest School Trip – and headed out to British Columbia at the beginning of June. We were able to catch up with them when they arrived home in Rivière-au-Renard, Québec after their 5-day adventure.
