CanaDream (TSX-VCDN) is a recreational vehicle rental and sales company with its head office in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

History[edit]

The company was established in December 1995, when businessmen Brian Gronberg, Rory Gronberg and Blaine Nicholson bought Canada Campers, an ailing company in the same business, out of receivership. The business was renamed to CanaDream Campers and was operated as a privately held company, with Brian Gronberg as President.

On May 27, 1997, CanaDream Campers became a public company[1] and began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange as CanaDream Corporation, under the symbol CDN.[2]

Present day[edit]

CanaDream operates 6 corporate and two franchised locations in Calgary, Vancouver, Whitehorse, Edmonton, Montreal, Toronto and Halifax.[3] Their fleet consists of approximately 700 vehicles.

On 25 August 2009, CanaDream announced they were entering into a partnership in the Canadian RV rental market with Apollo Motorhome Holidays.[4] CanaDream and Apollo announced they would continue to run independently but would investigate a range of synergies between the two companies.
