TPL Scotiabank Expedition:
BEST OF CANADA Series
Partnering business leaders and ill & injured soldiers for a life-changing experience.
Since 2012, TPL has produced ambitious expeditions around the world, which have directly impacted the lives of 30 Canadian Armed Forces members and engaged 50 influential Canadian business leaders. The expeditions have raised $5 million in funding for Veterans’ issues, providing meaningful mentorship opportunities and shedding a light on the stigma of mental illness and the challenges of Veterans’ transition.
Some of the programs and services we have supported through our expeditions include Military Families Fund, which provides counselling to military families, University of Southern California, to Canadianize a virtual reality treatment for PTSD, and Prospect’s Forces@WORK program, which helps Veterans pursue civilian employment.
Coast to coast to coast, let’s explore our great nation for Canada 150.
We’re thrilled to announce the next adventure in our expedition series – True Patriot Love Scotiabank Expedition: BEST OF CANADA.
In honour of Canada 150, True Patriot Love has chosen to celebrate the varied landscape of our great nation by exploring three remote locations. Taking place in the summer of 2017, BEST OF CANADA will challenge ill and injured soldiers and Canadian business leaders to take on some of the most unique adventures from coast to coast to coast. Whether it’s rafting in Central BC, canoeing in the Northwest Territories or kayaking the shores of Newfoundland, each expedition provides its own set of challenges.
These three expeditions are completely independent experiences, with teams of 30 participants each – 10 soldier team members, and 20 civilian team members.

The Cabot Expedition: JUNE 9 – JUNE 17
In 1497, European explorer John Cabot sailed across the Atlantic on the ship Matthew and laid claim to land in Eastern Canada. In 2017, True Patriot Love expeditioners will become explorers in their own right, exploring the coast of Newfoundland on an intensive sea kayak adventure. Participants will cross the open waters of the Bay of Exploits until they reach the incredible Fogo Island, where they will celebrate the completion of the journey with an east coast boil-up and community tour.
Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support of this year’s expeditions!
