    In celebration of Canada’s 150th year, The Red Couch Tour is traveling across the country to get your opinion on what Canada means to you.

    Spanning 63 days and 20,000 kilometers on the road in an RV, by September, the couch will visit every Province and Territory in Canada.

    To be a part of the fun, be sure to keep an eye out for the couch from noon until 2:00 p.m. tomorrow, August 11!

    Even some well known Canadian celebrities have shared their thoughts on the country like Bubbles from The Trailer Park Boys which can be seen below.





    Each person or group has one minute or less to share their pride. From there, the videos will be posted on

    YouTube and promoted through social media. The website will also host a digital mosaic of photographs taken during the tour, showcasing people met on the journey as a portrait of contemporary Canada.

    To view your own video as well as people across the country, visit here on the Red Couch Tour website.

    This unique tour is one of 38 signature Canada 150 projects selected by the Government of Canada to create opportunities for Canadians to celebrate and build a sense of pride and attachment to Canada.
