OUR MISSION IS TO AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR CULTURE
It’s our belief that due to Canada's sheer size and youthfulness as a nation, it lacks a unified and defined culture. Our mission is to provide Canada with accessible and affordable sauna locations for people to connect, be healthy & enjoy nature together. Vacation should be a way of life.
Canada is a large, diverse nation with a multitude of cultures and backgrounds. This makes it difficult to create a unified culture or identity. We believe that saunas provide an opportunity for Canadians to connect and foster a sense of community. Saunas not only offer a place of physical and mental relaxation, but also a place to meet new people, share stories, and bond with others.
Countries across planet earth that reach the age of 500 years or more of forming, have pivoted from making bathing an exclusively hygienic activity into one of hydrotherapy. A cultural place to congregate, connect, find peace and heal the body. When we go out for food in Canada we do not eat "Canadian" we enjoy many other ethnicities of food. This is what makes Canada so beautiful, an incredible level of variety and acceptance. As a country we deserve to claim together an amazing lifestyle.
WE ARE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE AND YET WE FEEL ALONE
In some of the worlds most developed countries suicide and/or depression rates have found all time heights, and Canada is one of one them. This is a major epidemic and reality for many Canadians, feeling a general lack of luster for life and or overall disconnected feeling inside and out.
Depression has more than half of Canadians feeling down, depressed, or hopeless (56%) and felt little interest or pleasure in doing things (59%), while nearly three-quarters felt tired or had little energy (72%).
Due to Canada’s geography ( ie its vast size and small population ) by nature we are distant from each other. This has led to people feeling generally isolated, and now with the surge of technology even more so as the population is using devices behind closed doors in solitude.
Our Climate for more than half the year is cold in Canada, and spending time in nature becomes more challenging, the cold nature keeps people further isolated and indoors.
The youthful Canada has not had a chance to form a cultural way of interacting with each other as a whole. Canada on the global scale is relatively "a baby" in terms of age, or time culturally had to form its rites, routines and culturally accepted uniquities and ways of life that differ from older, longer established. The major problem lies in Canadian identity and cultural practices that are accepted nation / worldwide as being a Canadian way of life.
Options for people to connect generally revolve around loud recreation centers with fluorescent lights reeking of chlorine, expensive and not habitually accessible spas, (silent can’t socialize) clubs & restaurants, bars (alcohol or food profit focussed).
The problem continues to lay in the way we have attempted to socialize and connect with each other are often in settings of consumption, alcohol and or in sport.
Our current goal is gaining social proof before we can move forward with our mission.

"Wow! What a beautiful offering for these times of high stress and intense world happenings. Such a treat it has been to walk out my front door first thing in the morning, fire up the sauna and have a sweat and a cold dip in our pond before coffee and breakfast." - Andy Smith
