Canada - Accessible/Easy Access Accommodation & Activities

Such is the immense size and variation in natural and man-made features of Canada that there is no one scene, or city or countryside view that can sum this country up. But this is a guide for people with impaired mobility, and in Canada there is no better example of achievement in difficult circumstances than Terry Fox, an amputee. The man in the photo. Terry showed amazing qualities of strength, endurance and willpower by running over 5000km across the country to raise funds for cancer research. His run highlights the size of his country, and the many communities who came out to support him along the way, its diversity. The response from Canadians to his effort shows that if you go there, you will be be among generous people.

The other images are of two widely separated Canadian cities – Vancouver with its mountains and beaches so close, and Montreal - older, situated on the shore of the St Laurence seaway - where our guide to accommodation and activities in Canada is starting. With your help we can grow – there is really no limit to the number of listings we have in a country as extensive and diverse as this.

Accessibility is in general a little easier in Vancouver as all of its downtown area is relatively flat, whereas much of Montreal is on the lower lower slopes of Mont Royal, a high point that provides a backdrop to the city. Which doesn't mean getting around there is too difficult - its not, but snow in winter is not so good.
