The Canadian Dream is inspiring us to Find New Roads as a car company. For over 100 years, we’ve been shaped by the Canadian Dream. By the people, places and things that move this country forward. The dream is now stronger than ever. So we drove across the country to capture it. See how the dream has inspired us along the way—and how it continues to inspire the programs we support, the cars we build and everything else we do.

Amanda Kalhous, Don Eng and Denesen Thuraisingam are engineers at the Canadian Technical Centre in Oshawa, Ontario. Every day they work hard developing new technology for Chevrolet. Because they all share one Canadian dream: to help give the next generation better choices. This is what inspired them to work on electric vehicles like the Bolt EV – so the world can be a better and safer place for their children. Their innovation is helping us find new roads as a car company.

Greg Hill and his family live in a small town deep in the mountains in BC. Protecting nature is important to them, but so is getting out to where they can discover their next adventure in the wilderness. The technology of the Bolt enables Greg to make sustainable choices, but still live the lifestyle he wants to live.

Canadians like Greg Hill inspire us to create sustainable technologies for vehicles like the Bolt EV, and help preserve the environment for future generations.

Samareh Kooshandeh is the founder of Vancouver Free Hugs. What started out as a way to make friends quickly turned into a movement. It was beautiful to witness her group connecting to Canadians and making their day brighter—without a single word. “It’s the silent way of saying, ‘You matter to me.’ ”
In this dream, people care about people they’ve never met. A small gesture can make a big difference. PIN Vancouver, BC
