Our Canada 150 Grand Portage Starts Today
A team of Hudson’s Bay adventurers is embarking on a journey across Canada, and they’re coming to a city near you.
Three experienced and intrepid paddlers will travel along The Great Trail, Canada’s network of recreational trails, by canoe, car and foot from Victoria, BC all the way to the Atlantic coast, finally returning to Ottawa on August 26. Our Grand Portage is a celebration of Canada 150 and part of our campaign to raise money to connect the final 2,200 kilometres of The Great Trail. A portion of each purchase from the Hudson’s Bay Grand Portage Collection will be donated to the campaign.
As they traverse the country, our team will stop at ten different Cadillac Fairview malls for special events where customers will receive limited edition gifts, take part in a Great Trail kids scavenger hunt, meet Canadian athletes and more. Find out when we’ll be in your city and RSVP on Facebook to an event near you. The first stop of our Grand Portage is today in Vancouver at the CF Pacific Centre. You can watch the event on Facebook Live starting at 3:30PM PT (6:30PM ET).
