ShaneIt’s time for OG to Lift Off in Atlantic Canada!

Organo Gold is arriving in the Atlantic Canada region for a first-time Lift Off event in New Brunswick, with OG’s Co-Founder and Global Master Distributor, Shane Morand. Shane will be appearing at the Fredericton Convention Center on August 8 and 9 for a special training and super Saturday event that is sure to see OG truly lift off in Atlantic Canada.

In honor of this, we thought we’d take a look at the history and culture of this beautiful region. Here are some facts about Atlantic Canada:

  • Atlantic Canada is the collective term for the region of Canada made up of the four provinces located on the Atlantic coast (excluding Quebec): New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia – and the easternmost province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • The  region is known for its natural beauty and for its history, particularly during the formation of Canada as a sovereign state.
  • The province of Newfoundland and Labrador was simultaneously the first part of what is now Canada to be explored by Europeans and the last part to join the confederation.
  • The Atlantic region is home to many of Canada’s oldest known indigenous populations. In fact, according to a paper by the Canadian Museum of History, “Atlantic Canada has been home to native populations for at least 11,000 years.”
  • The Mi’kmaq people are indigenous to the so-called Maritime provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, and were first encountered by European explorers and settlers in the 16th and 17th centuries.
  • European settlement in the area means the areas have a distinct mix of British, Scottish, Gaelic and French influences, which accounts for the unique accent found in the region.
  • The province of New Brunswick is the world’s second largest exporter of peat moss. The northeastern area of the province, known as the Acadian Peninsula, has a moist climate and flat terrain, which makes it an ideal spot for harvesting peat.
  • Prince Edward Island was made famous by Canadian writer Lucy Maud Montgomery (she wrote under the name L.M. Montgomery) whose much-loved Anne of Green Gables books about a plucky, red-haired orphan named Anne were set on the picturesque island.
