“Fear of a Flat Planet” Podcast with Mark Fawcett & Gregory Picard

Jul 06, 2021

Toyota Canada believes proudly in bringing together Canadians in sport and movement. As an Official Mobility and Official Vehicle partner of Canada Snowboard, including Para Snowboard and four other National Sports Organizations, our objective continues to be motivating our country to stay active, conquer obstacles and reach goals.

We have seen over and over the power of sport changing lives. Movement is a human right to us, with mobility going beyond vehicles. For this reason, we continue to stay focused on amplifying the importance of mobility and encouraging Canadians to participate in sports.
