The 1000 Towns of Canada is a digital project operated by Canadian not-for-profit corporation AVZ Studios, started in November 2016.
1000 Towns of Canada helps to build a digital communication bridge between small towns communities across all Canadian Provinces and Territories. It will engage local residents in promoting their pride of community and selling its unique charms.
1000 Towns is a digital one-stop shop platform based on modern digital, mobile and social media tools. It will build a communication link between small towns and their individual local websites. Each small town (about 1000 towns with populations ranging from approximately 1,000 to 30,000) will be represented on the platform by its own mini website
Unlike TripAdvisor, Expedia or Google Search, 1000 Towns provides local content curated by locals. Communities will have the opportunity to share thoughts, impressions and memories of their towns, as well as adding real-time events and local attractions, in a fully searchable database.
The 1000 Towns will help break down digital “walls” between communities and provide modern tools for external communications.
