Where to Go This Year? How about Canada?

Yes — Canada …

If you’re a doctor, you probably don’t vacation often enough. Well, this is the year to change. Taking more than two weeks of vacation is associated with less burnout among physicians.[1] Where should you go? It’s a great year to go to Canada. Here’s why.

Anniversary time! With not one but two major celebrations in 2017, Canada will be host to all kinds of special events. This is the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation, when the colonies united to form one country.[2] In honor of this, the country’s national parks, historic sites and marine conservation areas will offer free admission all year.[3]

So whether you’re heading to Banff National Park to see Lake Louise or exploring the Pacific Rim Nature Reserve in Vancouver, you can do it for little expense.

If you’re looking for something less rugged, Montreal, the glittering, sophisticated jewel of a city in the east, is celebrating its 375th anniversary with events throughout the year.

Canada is gigantic. Its 3.8 million square miles offer everything from thrilling hiking to sophisticated dining to world-class fishing. Try a wildlife safari in Manitoba to see polar bears, beluga whales, arctic foxes and caribou. Or visit the spas, restaurants and public markets of French-speaking Quebec City. If you want to reconnect with nature, head to Saskatchewan to hike and fly-fish at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, where you can stargaze without light pollution and search for dinosaur bones at an archeological dig.

Taking care of patients, not to mention the rest of your life, can be stressful. This year, decide not to get burned out, and head north, to Canada. It could be good for you and your practice.
