The Little Canada Story
Jean-Louis Brenninkmeijer, an immigrant to Canada, began learning all of the wonderful things about Canada when he would help his children with their school projects. He loved experiencing the wonder of his new country through their eyes.
Inspired by a visit to Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany, Jean-Louis began to develop a vision for a similar miniature world in Canada. In 2011, encouraged by two of his mentors to follow his heart and pursue his passion, Jean-Louis quit his job and turned his full attention to fulfilling his dream of building a miniature Canada.
Recognizing the need to partner with like-minded individuals who could help bring his vision to life, Jean-Louis sent out emails to various model railway clubs in the GTA and Hamilton area.
One of the responses he received was from Dave MacLean, a University of Toronto-educated civil engineer and two-term president of The Model Railroad Club of Toronto. More importantly, Dave had been a model enthusiast since the age of three, and had built dozens of model railroads for private, institutional and corporate clients.
The two quickly realized their shared passion and vision, and the rest is history. Today, with a team of talented individuals, experts in their respective field, and thousands of working hours, their dream is coming to life.
