Little Canada hopes to prove that great attractions come in extremely small packages. It’s the brainchild of lifelong model railroad enthusiast Jean-Louis Brenninkmeijer, who fell so in love with Canada when he emigrated from Europe that he came up with the amazing idea of recreating Canada’s wonders in miniature form. He and his team have spent over 10 years dreaming and building it!
So far, five destinations have already been built – Toronto, Niagara, Golden Horseshoe, Ottawa and Québec City – with more to come. In the works are little versions of Montréal, East Coast, Prairies, Rockies, West Coast and a climate-controlled North section. You can even watch the technicians and artists at work at the Miniature Makers Studio as part of the 45,000 square foot space.
Little Toronto features some of our city’s most iconic spots: CN Tower, Rogers Centre, John Street Roundhouse, Union Station and the business district. The attention to detail is astounding.
There’s also a café and gift shop, as well as the “Little Me Littlization Station”, a 3D scanning booth where you can get scanned and become a part of the display.
Little Canada has implemented a Covid-19 safety plan (which you can read here), including mask-wearing, timed entry to ensure guests can stay “one moose length apart”, and enhanced cleaning and air ventilation.
