EDITOR’S NOTE

I

love winter, especially here in Muskoka – but long about now, I admit we’re starting to dream about spring! With that in mind, we’ve designed our February digital issue with the purpose of helping you dream of sunnier days ahead. It starts with our cover story, where we check out the launch of Porsche Experiences Canada, a series of very special driving adventures designed by the legendary carmaker to bring out the racing and rallying DNA that’s within every Porsche vehicle – including yours. In this issue, you’ll also get a sneak peek at the season premieres of several new and returning HGTV shows, to get you dreaming about making some changes around the house – whether it’s a complete remodel or just a seasonal refresh (for more about that, check out “2022 Trends to Watch Out For,” also in this issue). And of course, we’ve got page after page of beautiful home and cottage property listings, many of them exclusive to Cayman Marshall and some of them brand-new with this edition. Go ahead and dream – your own Muskoka summer paradise may be waiting for you right here. Once again, my thanks to JD and the editorial team for another beautiful digital issue of Cayman Marshall Magazine. Here’s hoping your winter dreams come true – and here’s hoping Spring comes early!

The Future is

By Brooke Madden

successful female leaders share their stories and advice. Women in leadership positions are a special kind of power force. Perhaps it’s our inherent, often subtle defiance of the status quo; maybe it’s a primal drive to empower others like ourselves. It likely has something to do with the inexplicable yet undeniable rush of serotonin we get from the “Let’s go, girls!” part of that Shania Twain song. Motivations aside, girl power is growing rapidly in business. Research shows that Canadian female entrepreneurship has risen 30% since 2011. But what does it take to be a successful female leader? We decided to speak with seven accomplished women in multiple fields to find out.


Carmen Sandor

CEO and Founder, Green Owl Vodka

A

s a former tennis pro and team captain, Green Owl Vodka founder and CEO Carmen Sandor not only knows what it takes to be a team player, but to be a strong leader. Having climbed the ladder in the finance world, Carmen took a leap of faith and left her office job to pursue a passion project, one that would soon become stocked in 140 LCBO locations across the province. As the only green tea-flavoured vodka in Canada, Green Owl is “changing the way people drink vodka,” according to Sandor, who points out that the product is light, fresh, natural, and has no artificial ingredients. Carmen values empathy and communication in her leadership style. “One of the beautiful things about being a woman is that we’re really great communicators. Women have an elevated level of empathy, and that’s really important [in] a leader.” However, she also acknowledges that empathy only goes so far. “You have to find a way to be assertive, and go after what you want for your brand. Have an opinion, and take a stance.”


Alexis Green “O

ver the years, I did everything: busser, server, bartender, manager, director of food and beverage,” says Fever-Tree marketing manager Alexis Green. After attending school for graphic design, Alexis took a job in the marketing department of a company that owned restaurants and nightclubs, later moving on to a sales position. The experience gave her a wide array of useful skills in the competitive food and beverage arena, that made her uniquely suited for Fever-Tree. Today Green describes her work with Fever-Tree as focusing on “bring[ing] quality and choice into the mixer category.” As she proudly notes, “Now, in Canada, we have 16 different flavours in the tonic, ginger soda, and ‘refreshingly light’ range.

Marketing Manager, Fever-Tree There really is a Fever-Tree for everyone.” Alexis values collaboration as a leader. She encourages women to “evolve, nurture key strengths, and tackle areas of opportunities, personality, and competencies.” Nobody on your team is more or less important, valuable, or worth being thought less of. She advises, “Always see things as an opportunity to learn,” and to “be bold, and take risks!” Most importantly, she says, “Treat everyone well.”

Kat Florence

“I

t was a passion project. Everyone thought I was crazy, but I knew that I would always be okay,” says Kat Florence of the jewellery company that bears her name.

After completing a undergrad science degree and a masters in education, Kat Florence moved to Bangkok, where she worked at an art-based school as an educator for nearly a decade. Thailand happens to be a hub for gemstones, and over time she found her true passion.

FEBRUARY 2022

Owner and Designer, Kat Florence Jewellery

Kat noticed that even in high-end jewellery, the design doesn’t always showcase the gemstone in its best light. So she decided to become an expert on the subject, and began to create unique, rare gemstone-focused designs. Today, Kat Florence Jewellery sells around the world to collectors and auction houses, and does a new launch every month. “Each piece is about the rare jewel and its origin. That is where I begin every design,” says Kat. Florence believes it’s important for a female leader to “curate the individuals close to you.” Other key factors to success, she says, include “being consistent, knowing all aspects of your business, and never going into a situation unprepared.”


Hiawatha

Osawamick Executive Chef and Owner, Hiawatha’s

A

fter giving birth to her first daughter in 2008, Anishinaabe-Kwe, Executive Chef, and owner of Hiawatha’s, Hiawatha Osawamick knew it was time to make a change. Hiawatha has grown up working in restaurants - from bussing, to hosting, to waitressing, then eventually to the kitchen. Following in her family’s culinarily talented footsteps, she trained under one of Canada’s best chefs. When her daughter was born, the extensive evening and weekend work in restaurants became less than ideal for raising a child, so she decided to start her own catering business. Now, Hiawatha’s serves fresh, quality, Indigenous cuisine. Hiawatha takes pride in her catering services being a “true, Indigenous experience,” engaging with guests, providing menus, and serving her delicious food herself. As a female entrepreneur, Hiawatha believes leaders should “learn from their mistakes. Take criticism, and turn it into something positive.” Osawamick also believes that in a male-dominated industry such as the culinary one, one must “go above and beyond.”


Katie Zeppieri Founder and CEO, GIRL TALK Speakers

K

atie Zeppieri has had a whirlwind of an entrepreneurial career. On top of working tirelessly as a marketing consultant and talent agent, Zeppieri also manages her sister businesses MicDrop Marketing and GIRL TALK Speakers Bureau, which represent an impressive roster of high-profile businesses and individuals. “The heart of both agencies is helping amplify people and brands,” Zeppieri says. MicDrop Marketing helps companies and people build buzz through holistic PR and brand management. Zeppieri’s second agency, GIRL TALK Speakers Bureau, focuses on empowering women and elevating female voices. Its goal is to be the largest female speakers bureau in North America. And with Netflix’s “Love Is Blind” star, Kelly Chase, as a recent addition to their roster, GIRL TALK Speakers Bureau is well on its way to achieving that. “My nickname is ‘Your Hype Girl’! I’m passionate about helping amplify stories worth telling,” she says, adding that her leadership and entrepreneurial spirit are built on resilience. “It’s the most important trait I’ve cultivated as an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart.” Katie also believes in staying committed to your larger vision. “Be stubborn with your vision, but flexible with the route you take to get there.” Alicia Thurston Photography


BojanaSentaler

President and Creative Director, Sentaler

A

s founder, designer, and creative director of luxury outerwear maker Sentaler, Bojana Sentaler is not only a successful entrepreneur, but an acclaimed Canadian fashion icon whose designs have been sported by celebrities like Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. After immigrating to Canada from Serbia at a young age, Bojana passionately sketched fashion designs throughout her entire childhood. Growing up with Canadian winters, Bojana understood what it meant to need warm, comfortable, and stylish outerwear. She completed her degree in Marketing and Finance from the Schulich School of Business and

then began travelling the world. It was in Peru that Sentaler would discover Alpaca fur, one of the world’s finest and rarest fibres, which is naturally durable and has properties that make it ideal for cold winter weather. This rich fibre would become the basis for Sentaler, a now globally recognized luxury Canadian outerwear brand offering a variety of distinct signature styles. Bojana values elegance, beauty, and functionality with each coat she designs. As a leader, Sentaler values giving back, evidenced by her extensive commitment to raising awareness and funds for SickKids Foundation, as well as the long-term environmental commitment, Forests for the Future.

rior to starting Ripe Juicery, founder and co-owner Meghan Muise worked in a hospital. “I realized very quickly that I was in sick care, and I wanted to be in health care,” Muise admits. After travelling extensively with her best friend Lindsay, the two women opened Ripe Juicery. “And now we’re a million-dollar juice business. Just two girls who thought, ‘Let’s be brave’.” Meghan, a mother of two, values organic and sustainable practices. Ripe is a

zero-waste company, even donating the pulp from the company’s juices to an animal sanctuary. “Our practices make us so different,” she explains. “We’re showing people what it’s like to run a business that ticks all of the boxes. Motherhood and growing a business is so doable, but you have to have grace with yourself. You can do it all; it just might not be glamorous.” She also insists leaders must know how to do every part of their business – she says that’s the main reason Ripe grew during the pandemic. Most importantly, Meghan believes, you must “love what you do.”

WITH CAYMAN MARSHALL

W

e like to think of ourselves as family here at Cayman Marshall, and exchanging favourite recipes is becoming an annual tradition. We asked a few of our team members to share a recipe that has special meaning for them, and tell us why it resonates. From the exotic sweet-and-sour tang of Thai Chicken, to the quintessentially Irish comfort food of Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes and Carrots – finishing with the sweet, all-Canadian goodness of homemade butter tarts, made with maple syrup from Muskoka trees – allow us to present to you the makings of a real feast, courtesy of the Cayman Marshall team.

FEBRUARY 2022


CHICKEN CACCIATORE For sales rep Cat Brown, introducing new clients to the special experience of cottage living, and watching families grow up making the same memories she enjoyed as a kid, is the very best part of what she does at Cayman Marshall. In fact, her own family memories partly inspired her choice of Chicken Cacciatore. “My brother-in-law always made it and I really enjoyed it, so now I make it all through the winter,” she says. “It’s a homey, filling recipe that everyone loves – and you can make it in one pot, so clean-up is easy.”

• 3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil, divided

1) Season chicken with salt and pepper.

• 6 bone-in skinless chicken thighs

2) Heat 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil in a heavy cast iron skillet. Sear chicken on both sides until golden, about 3-4 minutes each side. Remove from skillet and set aside.

• Salt and pepper, to season • 1 medium onion, diced • 2 tbsp (30 mL) minced garlic (6 cloves) • 1 small yellow bell pepper, diced • 1 small red bell pepper, diced • 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced • 10 oz (300 g) mushrooms, sliced • 1/2 c (125 mL) pitted black olives • 8 sprigs thyme • 2 tbsp (30 mL) each freshly chopped parsley and basil, plus more to garnish • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano • 2/3 c (150 mL) red wine • 28 oz (820 g) crushed tomatoes • 2 tbsp (30 mL) tomato paste • 7 oz (200 g) Roma tomatoes, halved • 1/2 tsp (3 mL) red pepper flakes

3) Add remaining oil to pan. Sauté onion until transparent, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add peppers, carrot, mushrooms and herbs; cook for 5 minutes until vegetables begin to soften. 4) Pour in the wine, scraping up browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook until wine is reduced, about 2 minutes. 5) Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, Roma tomatoes and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Return chicken pieces to skillet and continue to cook over stove top OR in the oven, following the instructions below.

FOR STOVETOP: Mix all of the ingredients together; cover with lid, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes or until the meat is falling off the bone. Add olives, and allow to simmer for a further 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately. FOR OVEN/SLOW COOKER: Transfer covered skillet to a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) and cook for 50 minutes. Remove lid, add the olives and cook for an additional 20 minutes until chicken is tender and falling off the bone, and sauce has reduced. If the sauce is too thin for your liking, add 2 tbsp (30 mL) of extra tomato paste while it’s simmering to thicken. MAKE AHEAD: Cacciatore can be made up to one day ahead, cooled, covered and refrigerated. Rewarm over medium-low heat. FREEZE: Transfer cooled cacciatore into an airtight container and transfer to freezer. The day of serving, thaw it out in the morning and bring to room temperature. Transfer to a skillet and reheat over medium-low heat until warmed through. (Recipe adapted from Cafe Delites, www.cafedelites.com.)


HALUSKI (POLISH MAC ’N’ CHEESE) A junior designer at Cayman Marshall, Katie works alongside senior designer Meredith Parsons on the firm’s various building and design projects. The creative fulfillment of working with other professionals and with clients to turn dreams and ideas into reality is the most rewarding part of her job.

Katie has loved this variation on a classic family favourite since she was a little kid, she says, and today it’s one of her go-to winter recipes. “My family has Polish roots and this is one of my mom’s specialties – you usually find pancetta in pasta dishes like carbonara, but it’s delicious in a mac ’n’ cheese recipe like this.”

• 1 head green cabbage • 1 Vidalia sweet onion • Approx 8 oz (125 mL) pancetta, diced (or more to taste) • 5 oz. (about 150 mL) plain goat cheese (or more to taste) • 1/2 c (125 mL) butter, melted • 16 oz. (500 mL) bag egg noodles

1) Roughly chop green cabbage, onion and pancetta. Melt butter in frying pan. Add pancetta and onion and cook until pancetta is just turning crisp. 2) Add chopped cabbage. Add salt, pepper, and ground chili peppers to taste and continue to cook until cabbage is tender. 3) Meanwhile, boil 1 bag of egg noodles in salted water (about eight minutes for al dente). Drain and add to pan. 4) Crumble goat cheese. Add to pan and simmer, stirring occasionally, till cheese is melted and mixture is thoroughly coated.


• 2 c (500 mL) water • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt • 6 potatoes, thinly sliced • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced • 4 medium carrots, diagonally sliced • 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter or margarine • 2 tbsp (30 mL) flour • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt

CHEESY SCALLOPED POTATOES AND CARROTS Office administrator Erin O’Reilly is often the first voice you hear when you call Cayman Marshall’s Port Carling office reception. The best thing about working with CM, she says, is the supportive team atmosphere, and of course, seeing the listings of beautiful new properties that continually flow through the office. This filling Irish carrot-and-potato dish has been in Erin’s family for three generations. “It was my grandmother’s recipe, handed down to my mom and now me,” says Erin. “It’s truly a comfort food. My mom and grandmother grew up in Ireland and it’s a traditional recipe there; it really embodies our Irish heritage. It’s kind of a taste of the old country, and it’s great to bring to family gatherings.”

• 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) pepper • Dash cayenne • 1-1/2 c (375 mL) milk • 1-1/2 c (375 mL) Old Cheddar cheese, grated

1) Heat oven to 375º F (190º C). 2) Bring water to a boil in a large frying pan. Add salt, potatoes, onions and carrots. Cover and cook five minutes, until partially tender. Drain. 3) In medium saucepan, melt margarine and remove from heat. Stir in flour, salt, pepper and cayenne. Add milk, blending well. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until thickened and smooth. Stir in 1 cup (250 mL) of the cheese and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted. 4) Layer half of the potatoes, onions and carrots in a lightly greased 9 x 13 in (23 x 33 cm) baking dish. Top with half the cheese sauce. Repeat layers; sprinkle with remaining cheese. 5) Bake, covered, for 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove cover for last 10 minutes of baking.

THAI CHICKEN For Cayman sales representative Mike Arnold, it’s a never-ending pleasure to be able to show the region’s beautiful lakeside properties to clients, and to help them fulfill their dreams of owning a fabulous vacation property. This easy-to-make recipe is a big favourite with Mike’s kids. “On their birthdays they get their choice of what they want for dinner, and it’s always this one,” he laughs. Try serving it with rice to soak up that tangy-sweet sauce.

• Chicken breasts, cut into cubes • 1/8 to 1/4 c (60 to 125 mL) each soya sauce, teriyaki sauce, and oyster sauce • 2 tbsp (30 mL) black bean sauce • 2 cloves garlic • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh ginger • 2 tbsp. (30 mL) olive oil • 5-8 whole chili peppers, to taste • 1/2 medium jar peanut butter

1) Combine soya, teriyaki and oyster sauces, then add black bean sauce to the mixture. Add garlic and ginger. Toss with chicken and marinate overnight in refrigerator. 2) In large frying pan, heat oil and blacken chili peppers. Add chicken with marinade and cook till no longer pink. (If necessary, add more sauce to coat.) 3) Just before serving, add peanut butter and stir till thoroughly mixed and evenly coated.


MAPLE BUTTER TARTS Cayman Marshall Magazine’s chief editor Kallan Koch says she loves the variety of content she and her team get to share with readers – from gorgeous luxury listings, to stellar style and design, and now and then, delicious recipes. “When I moved to Muskoka, my family and I tapped our trees and began the journey of making our own maple syrup,” she says. “I found this recipe and now it’s a staple we make every year for family and friends.”

PASTRY SHELLS (makes 16)

FILLING • 3/4 c (200 mL) brown sugar

• 1-1/4 c (310 mL) pastry flour

• 1/4 c (60 mL) butter, softened

• 1/2 c (125 mL) COLD unsalted butter, cut into cubes (leave in fridge until ready to use)

• 2 eggs

• 6 tbsp (90 mL) ice water, divided

• 1/2 c (125 mL) maple syrup • 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour • 1/2 tbsp (7 mL) vanilla extract • 1/2 tbsp (7 mL) maple extract • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt • 1/4 c (60 mL) raisins (optional)

1) Using a pastry blender, blend the butter into the flour until crumbly (do not touch with hands or it will melt the butter and not get that flaky texture). Then gradually add in water until the dough is just holding together. 2) Roll out dough to desired thickness and cut out circles large enough to fit the bottoms of cupcake tins. Then cut out strips (about 2 inches wide) to cover the sides of the cupcake tins. Make sure sides are above the edge of the tin or it will be difficult to take out the tarts after baking. Blend the two pieces together with fingers to make tart shells.

1) Preheat oven to 350ºF (190ºC). 2) Beat brown sugar and butter together in a bowl until smooth; whisk in eggs, maple syrup, flour, vanilla and maple extract, raisins (optional), and salt. Fill each uncooked tart shell 3/4 full with maple syrup mixture. Optional: can do a light egg wash on the exposed shells to make the edges golden and crispy! 3) Bake in preheated oven until filling is set and shells are golden, about 16-18 minutes. Wait until cool (5 minutes) before taking out of tins for easier removal.

FULL SPECTRUM OF NEUTRALS:

W

e’ve already seen green make a big splash as the 2022 colour of the year – chosen for its cooling, calming effect and strong connection to nature. In the past, we’ve seen this colour personified as a literal interpretation of nature (think lush, leafy vibrancy). But green is a multi-faceted hue indeed, and the movement toward organic, sustainable living and environmental awareness has influenced its iteration for 2022. The new “it” green appears in a much more muted form, in what I think may herald the return of a neutral colour palette on our walls and everything in between. But of course, popular trends don’t resonate with everyone, and green certainly isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Luckily, neutral colours can echo the up-to-the-minute nature trend without the colour commitment. Don’t get me wrong – I personally love using colour in the right places and doses. But while other colour trends come and go, neutrals have longevity.

Here’s how to use neutrals with an eye to what’s trending in 2022.

Contrary to popular belief, a neutral colour palette offers many more choices than just variations on cream, beige and oatmeal hues. Trending palettes in 2022 will include a full spectrum of light- and mid-toned neutrals, ranging from the aforementioned soft sage green to creamy-whites with pink undertones and barely-there blues. Their subtlety gives them versatility while infusing a touch of colour. And like true neutrals, they perfectly pair with pops of vibrant colour, a variety of metals, and a wide range of materials and finishes. On the other hand, these gentle neutrals can also be used as an accent colour for details and trim, brightening and balancing darker hues like deep blue or an almost-black aubergine.

TEXTURE: This isn’t a new trend by any stretch, but it will be a star on the design and decor stage in 2022, bringing life to the neutral and nature trends. I often layer a variety of organic materials, such as wood, stone, concrete and organic textiles. Texture creates depth and adds interest, with a subtle nod to nature.


LIGHTING: All eyes will be on bold, statement lighting in 2022. I’ve always held that lighting should never be just a bulb. It should be viewed as a thing of beauty, a feature and focal point in a room. Every light in the home is an opportunity for art and expression. But of course, lighting plays an important functional role as well, lighting your space and highlighting its features. Pay careful attention when it comes to the “temperature” of your bulbs. A warm bulb, which gives off yellow light, could compromise your colour intentions. The same is true for cool light bulbs, which can appear fluorescent or even blueish. Look for “daylight” bulbs, which mimic natural light and offer a true representation of your palette. If you want to create ambiance, consider adding dimmers to every light source.

The new year promises to be an exciting one, in decor and many other ways, too. As new home and product trends start swirling, perhaps the most important one to keep your eye on is the increasing desire to focus on self – healing, growth and happiness. Let those goals guide your renovation or interior refresh. Look to what brings you joy and comfort. When you achieve that atmosphere inside your home, you just might find that your view of the outside world gets warmer and brighter, too.

The Start of A New

Legacy What if you could combine the convenience and maintenance-free lifestyle of a resort with the peace, privacy and freedom of your own Muskoka cottage? And what if, when you weren’t there, you were actually earning a return on your investment?

By Martha Uniacke Breen

THAT’S THE IDEA BEHIND LEGACY COTTAGES, A PREMIER SEASONAL COTTAGE COMMUNITY ON LAKE ROSSEAU NEAR MINETT. “It’s really a different kind of cottage experience, “ explains Cayman Marshall agent Steve Haddock, who is representing the properties. “It’s a community of 42 privately owned villas with a total of 450 feet of shared waterfront.

Carling.There’s always lots to do while you’re here: golfing and tennis, watersports, fine dining and much more. Go for a swim and reconnect with neighbours in the exclusive Pool Pavilion, or launch your canoe, kayak, or motorboat from the Boathouse. Or simply relax in the peace and quiet of your own contemporary-designed cottage, and enjoy the view. "And because it’s classed as a condominium,” Steve continues, “there’s no maintenance worries, as you might have with a private cottage. While you’re up here, you’re relaxing, not looking after the cottage.”

THE BENEFITS OF LISTING EXCLUSIVELY WITH CAYMAN MARSHALL

M

ost brokerages advise you to put your property into the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, in order to get it in front of the greatest number of prospective buyers possible. But when it comes to Muskoka property – especially in the current market – that may not be the best, or even most desirable, route for you. Cayman Marshall has a better way to market your property, which not only ensures that only serious, wellqualified buyers view your property, but allows you to maintain your privacy and avoid the stress and hustle of listing with MLS. With a Cayman Marshall exclusive listing, your property will only be visible to members of our proprietary database. Personal viewing appointments are only scheduled after our agents have taken prospective buyers through a careful pre-screening process.

Our system works equally well for buyers. Rather than enduring the “feeding frenzy,” panic-bidding and sometimes, disappointment that accompanies desirable MLS properties, you have the assurance of knowing the property is only being seen by serious, well-qualified prospects like you, and managed exclusively through Cayman Marshall’s offices. The success of our system speaks for itself: since last August, we’ve sold well over $133 million in exclusive sales alone. Allow us to show you the better way to sell your Muskoka property!

PORSCHE EXPERIENCE CANADA Next-Level Luxury Adventures in a Country Built for Driving By DC Rutherford There’s something singular about driving a Porsche, a feeling only a select few have had the privilege to experience. Perhaps it’s the sense that you’ve tethered yourself to a tradition of precision and perfection that few automobile manufacturers can boast: slipping into a 2021 Panamera Turbo S simultaneously seats you in a 1973 911 Carrera RS. Simply taking the kids to school in your 2020 Cayenne could trace its roots to the 1984 Formula One season and ​​ a McLaren MP4/2 powered by a TAG-Porsche engine – dreams of Niki Lauda, of Alain Prost, of Keke Rosberg. Every corner a Porsche driver takes, every straightaway you master, every gear you shift, is part of something grander, of grandeur, of legacy. Porsche isn’t simply a car manufacturer; it’s a community of automobile enthusiasts who require something special in their driving experience, whether it’s a trip to the supermarket or an F1 circuit. And as Porsche has always served as the matriarch of its community, these offerings for its aficionados in Canada enriches the already inspired.

72

FEBRUARY 2022


Welcome to the Porsche Experience Canada. Porsche Experience Canada is part of the German carmaker’s ongoing unparalleled attention to its drivers. With three distinct and unique experiences – Ice Experience, Track Experience, and Travel Experience – Porsche has made Canada home to a set of highly diverse and eclectic driving experiences. With each of these unique endurances, drivers can take to the road (and off them) like never before.

FEBRUARY 2022

73


ICE EXPERIENCE Anyone born, raised, or who has ridden on Canada’s roads knows ice. The inherent challenges of driving in winter are a burden to many. But to Canadians, it’s not just a rite of passage, but a point of pride. Porsche’s Ice Experience takes that pride to a whole new level. Whether drivers choose the Ice Trial, Ice Intro, Ice Experience, or Ice Force options, they’ll enjoy two to five days of driving instruction and adventure like never before. In a specially outfitted Porsche 911 Carrera S or 4S, guests will be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience where, according to the Porsche literature, “Instructors teach drivers to conquer the season on specially prepared snow and ice tracks. You'll learn to drive a Porsche the way it's meant to be driven with the skills that will make you a more confident and competent winter driver.” Guests will enjoy the singularity of Canadian winter in Mécaglisse, Quebec, and stay in the exclusive Estérel Resort, offering world-class dining and accommodations in a postcard-like setting.

ENJOY TWO TO FIVE DAYS OF DRIVING INSTRUCTION AND ADVENTURE LIKE NEVER BEFORE. 74

FEBRUARY 2022


TRACK EXPERIENCE Just 90 minutes east of Toronto is the historic Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. This track has hosted legendary drivers such as Jacques Villeneuve, Mario Andretti, Stirling Moss and more, and offers both a Grand Prix track and a Driver Development Track. Now you too can take the corners the pros have taken. Here, professional instructors let drivers push themselves to the very limits of their driving ability. The programs “are designed in stages to increase one of the most important aspects of dynamic driving: the driver.” That mandate is apparent in every aspect of the experience. Strapped into a Porsche 911 Carrera S or 4S that tops out at 308 kilometres an hour, drivers will ​“focus on dynamic car control in order to build their skills and safety behind the wheel.” Half-day to three-day experiences are available for drivers of differing abilities in small groups of like-minded Porsche connoisseurs, with the idea of “Drive fast, drive safe.”

FEBRUARY 2022

75


TRAVEL EXPERIENCE As much as you may love speeding around ovals and navigating racing circuits, driving is about going somewhere, and the Porsche Travel Experience takes that to a whole new level. “Porsche Travel Experience offers two separate programs: the fresh mountain air in British Columbia, or the friendly seaside communities on the Nova Scotian coast. During a Travel Experience, you'll find a connection to yourself, the car, and a country regardless of which experience you choose.” A bold promise, but one on which Porsche delivers. Whether on Nova Scotia’s South Shore and Cape Breton, or Whistler and the Okanagan Valley in British

76

FEBRUARY 2022

Columbia, drivers will log over 1,200 kilometres on the most beautiful roads the country has to offer, in some of the most spectacular automobiles to ever grace them. Touring in a Porsche 911 Carrera S or 4S, drivers will experience four days of driving excellence. In B.C., the tour begins with the legendary Sea-to-Sky Highway from Vancouver to Whistler, and continues through picturesque Vernon and Osoyoos, the southernmost point in the Okanagan, with stays at Four Seasons Resort Whistler, Sparkling Hill Resort, and Spirit Ridge Resort. ​​While in Nova Scotia, guests will visit Peggy’s Cove, the Cabot Trail, the majesty of the Atlantic and Maritime hospitality.


PORSCHE EXPERIENCE CENTRE With any of these Porsche Experiences, you can see the German luxury automaker’s affection for, and investment in, Canada as both a driver’s paradise and an important global market. Porsche recently announced that it is taking that commitment one step further, and will soon begin construction on its tenth global experience centre. The first opened at Silverstone in the United Kingdom; Canada’s will be the third location in North America, joining Atlanta and Los Angeles. “Canadians will no longer have to leave the country in order to visit a Porsche Experience Centre,” said Porsche Cars Canada president and CEO Marc Ouayoun upon the announcement, adding,“Customers and brand enthusiasts will have the chance to experience Porsche with their head, heart, and hands – all in the Greater Toronto Area.” The project aims to be completed by 2024. PEC Toronto will be located on a 20-acre site at the Durham Live development in Pickering, Ontario, which currently features a casino, and will include a concert venue, more than 400,000 square feet of retail space, and a luxury hotel with more than 300 rooms. The centre will be the culmination of Porsche’s investment in Canada, and a Babylon of sorts for Porsche enthusiasts. Joining the Experiences already established in Canada, this initiative is the realization of a brand. As a member of the executive board for sales and marketing at Porsche, Detlev von Platen, notes, “Porsche is more than just a car. Porsche is a promise for a unique brand and product experience.”
