We’re in month 12/12 and the holiday season is upon us.
Amidst the changing landscape and challenges of this year, our team at Little Canada continued, as always, to amaze. Their continuous efforts, and ability to face whatever was presented, allowed us to hit some major milestones. From the big move out of Mississauga and placing our roots at 10 Dundas East, to our teams first rally cry to complete Little Niagara before the end of 2020, our team has proved how much we can accomplish when we come together.
We’ve made some major movement on both the operation and build teams, so let’s get right into this month’s updates.

Little Canada’s First Operational Roadway
Our team hit a big milestone this month with the completion of the first fully installed, tested and operational road system in Little Niagara. The Clifton Hill loop is the longest hill on any of the active roads in Little Canada. Two of the three roads that run through Little Niagara will be the only 3D printed roads in our world. The initial design was created by Stan Ziberna, who passed away last December. Stan was one of the first employees of Little Canada and the major contributor to the advancements made on our vehicles and animations team. The 3D printed roads will be left in honour of him. To pay tribute to Stan, his passion and incredible work, Little Canada will name the roadway “Stanley Ziberna Memorial Parkway”. Click the link below to see all the action.
