A misconception exists that Aboriginal travel experiences can only be enjoyed amid nature and rural settings with vast amounts of forest or ocean. The truth is Indigenous communities have been and continue to be vital contributors to the arts and culture scene in metropolitan areas across Canada. In Vancouver and its nearby municipalities, visitors can enjoy an entire stay complete with Aboriginal activities, including fine dining, world-class art experiences, and luxury hotel stays.
Vacay.ca occasionally publishes articles on destinations outside of Canada. Vacay.ca Managing Editor recently toured through Berlin, whose street food is worth celebrating. BERLIN, GERMANY — If there’s a silver lining in any misery, Berlin’s street food is a gleaming example. One of the city’s blessings since the end of the Second World War is the flavours that arrived from afar and steadfastly seeped into its culture.
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — This Thanksgiving, many families in Canada will have reason to give thanks to Jean-François Archambault — even if they don’t know his name. Archambault turned the death of his mother into a profound enterprise to nourish the young people in Montreal. He broadened his project to other locations in Quebec and has steadily moved west across Canada, bringing an inventive way to provide meals to children in need to Toronto, Calgary and now Vancouver.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
