New Yorkers put up with a lot to live in the Big Apple. Our neighbor to the north wants to give them some breathing room.

Think your New York City apartment is THE SMALLEST? Prove it and Destination Canada (the official government tourism board) will help you escape to the Great White North. The creative new tourism campaign, suggests that even New Yorkers believe “the only thing better than calling New York City home is escaping it.” Pointing to a “recent survey” a statement to the press argues that nearly 70 percent of surveyed New Yorkers want to get away but can’t always afford to.

Also from the survey:

  • To save money, 32 percent of New Yorkers would be willing to go without a major appliance in their home and 27 percent would live in a 5th-floor walkup.
  • Twenty-four percent of New Yorkers admitted they maintain friendships with people just to spend time in their larger homes.
  • And 71 percent of New Yorkers say they already “endure oddball living conditions” in order to save money to travel. It's true, people really do use their ovens for shoe storage.

But don’t despair, Destination Canada is here to rescue New Yorkers from small apartments by giving away free escapes to Canada’s vast open spaces.

And they’ve teamed up with TikTok legend Caleb Simpson (the “can I see your apartment” guy) to do it. As Simpson explains in a recent Instagram post:


  • WHY: New Yorkers have always made sacrifices when it comes to living space, but nowadays, it seems we’ve reached a fever pitch – with apartments in Brooklyn being as cramped as 351 sq ft.
  • WHAT: Three (3) lucky winners will receive a custom experience (valued at $5,000 USD) - trip will include transportation, accommodations, excursions, and more, curated by Canadian travel experts.
  • WHEN: March 6 - April 3
  • HOW: It’s simple to enter: Visit and enter the square footage of your apartment and submit a 15-second video tour of your small living space.

Canada has lots of open spaces to offer from the coasts
