Celebrating Canadian products and stories made this Companion so much fun to bring together. Inside this issue is a 5-page Birthday spread displaying some of our favourite Made in Canada products. We love these products and you will too! We also have reason to celebrate from coast to coast, as we have now sponsored 40 DOG GUIDE TEAMS FROM ALL ACROSS CANADA! From little cities to large metropolises, your donations are helping Canadians in need. To see our map of Canada and an update on the teams we have sponsored, visit page 14. And a thank you to the Dog Guides for allowing us to photograph Gilly for the cover of this Companion, on a beautiful day in front of Lake Ontario (did you know that Canada has more lakes then any other country – makes for great pictures!). Gilly is currently being fostered where she will learn basic training and obedience before being enrolled in the Dog Guide training program. Good luck Gilly, we can't wait to see where in Canada you will end up! Happy reading, In Ban– National Park in Alberta, there are overpasses made for wildlife to keep them (and drivers) safe. Wildlife includes grizzly and black bears, wolves, cougars, moose, elk, deer and wolverines. Author A.A. Milne based the lovable Winnie the Pooh on a real bear from Winnipeg, Manitoba. 60% of the world's polar bear population live in Canada.
