October 1st, 2019 | Toronto, CA – Driftscape is thrilled to announce its first national partnership with the National Trust for Canada (NTC), a Canadian national charitable not-for-profit organization that leads and inspires action for places that matter. Through this partnership, Driftscape will not only support NTC in its mission to bring Canadian heritage to life but will also be sponsoring their National Trust conference - Canada’s largest heritage learning and networking event.
Available starting today, you'll be able to find over 65 historic sites across Canada curated by the Passport Places Program of NTC in the Driftscape app. Did you know that Cape Bonavista, located in New Foundland, is one of the few lighthouses in the world where you can still climb up the stone tower and see the same seal oil fueled catoptric light apparatus that was used in the 1800s? Explore historic sites like this and learn more about Canada's history with the Driftscape app. Visitors can download the free app, to explore the history of Canada in augmented reality, and get notified when there is something interesting nearby.
"It's our mission to provide a platform where diverse stories can be shared, which fits perfectly with National Trust for Canada's mission to bring history to life so we're thrilled to partner with them! We hope to provide a way for even more people to discover Canadian history in an interactive way via the Driftscape App."
