Canada Camino


Aangen and Heart Space are Calling ALL hikers to join for the 4th Annual Canada Camino on the Bruce Trail! 

Over six days Gurbeen of Aangen and Shira intend to hike approximately 158km of the Bruce Trail from near Waterdown to Mono Mills to raise funds for food security initiatives both locally and globally. Aangen is a not-for-profit agency that supports food security locally by preparing meals for homeless and vulnerable populations as well as through support for local food banks. Shira’s business, Heart Space, is partnering with Joy Village, Nigeria in their efforts to develop food security programs to relieve hunger. Every donation is dedicated to ending hunger!

There are three ways you can get involved:

1) Hike with us! Join for as many days as your schedule permits. All hikers are encouraged to attempt to raise a minimum of $100 per day hiked or $500 for the full camino! To register as a hike click here.

2) Sponsor us! Email me with your intention to donate and go to to make a dedicated donation. 

3) Cheer on the hikers by following us on instagram @aangen @shiragracetaylor #CanadaCamino2020 and give us your support.


Each day has an approximately 20-25km hike through beautiful scenic Southern Ontario and offers all participants a chance to get active and explore the inner and outer terrain we live in. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, all participants will return home at the end of each day of hiking.

In addition to our fundraising efforts, this hike is an opportunity to go beyond our day-to-day lives and open to something much bigger. With each step, we connect to mother earth who nourishes and sustains us, and we remember all the land ancestors who have taken care of her for millenia. We feel our interdependence with all life, we feel just this moment, and we are grateful. Challenges like this and like COVID-19 (a pilgrimage of it’s own!) are truly opportunities to open, to become humble, and to assimilate new understandings and ways of being in the world… It is a walk to heal hunger and to heal our own hearts. Something very much in line with the priceless teachings that Father Charles of Joy Village has been sharing with many of us.
