Viral content creator and New York City apartment expert, Caleb Simpson, is helping Destination Canada find cramped dwellers in need of Canada’s wide open spaces
VANCOUVER, BC, March 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — A new study conducted by Wakefield Research revealed 60% of New Yorkers report feeling cramped in their living space, including 80% of Millennials and Gen Zers. In fact, 70% of New Yorkers report the only thing better than calling New York City home is escaping it.
Destination Canada is here to help. This month, the tourism board introduced Upsize to Canada, a program offering confined New Yorkers a chance to experience Canada’s wide-open spaces and sprawling natural landscapes. To enter, New Yorkers can simply visit UpsizeToCanada.com and share the square footage of their apartment and a short video of their compact quarters—the smaller, the better—by April 3, 2023. Three lucky winners will receive a custom experience (valued at $5,000 USD) that will include transportation, accommodations, excursions, and more, curated by Canadian travel experts.
Helping spread the word is New York-based viral content creator, Caleb Simpson, who gained online fame thanks to his insider apartment tours where he interviews New York residents with unique and petite properties. With more than 9.7 million followers across his social media channels, Caleb understands what micro-apartment residents in all five boroughs are up against.
New Yorkers with cozy apartments can enter to win by visiting UpsizeToCanada.com now through April 3, 2023. To enter, travelers should submit the approximate square footage of their apartment along with a short, 15-second video tour. Entrants must be 21+ and a resident of one of the five boroughs of New York City to win.
