The 1000 Towns of Canada is a digital project building a communication bridge between small town communities across all Canadian Provinces and Territories. It will engage local residents in promoting their pride of communities and selling their 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 unique page.
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.
