In The Game Celebrates Being Canadian with the Upcoming Release of Canadiana
Canada has produced world-class entertainers, athletes, entrepreneurs, inventors, scientists and world leaders.
Our product will be both educational and recreational and will allow all Canadians to learn more about our rich Canadian heritage and how Canadians have had an impact throughout the world.
Talent, ability and hard work have no borders and while many of Canada’s personalities live outside our country, Canada is still their “home and native land”.
Here are some of the Cut Signatures in the Canadiana project.
More details to follow.
