So as a Metaverse blogger and someone who also has an interest in things Canadian, I thought I would take a look for Canadian related things in SL. It seems there is not much of a Canadian presence in SL, I may be wrong and might be looking in all the wrong places but that is certainally my impression so far.

One of the few Canadian presences I have recently discovered is the Telus build. For those that don’t know Telus are a Canadian telecommunication company, providing landlines, mobiles, internet access, tv access etc. They are quite a big company in the Canadian marketplace, probably equivalent of Virgin Media here in the UK.

Regards the build, well it’s not on its own island, but on a mainland called ‘Shinda’. The builder is the well known Scope Cleaver, who its seems is building up quite a corporate portfolio.

Not exactly sure the about purpose of the build, it seems like it is just a place to show of various offers and products the company has, an in-world shop window if you like. There doesn’t appear to be many place’s for meetings, nor are there any obvious events or attempts to build a community, although I thought the Halloween decorations were a nice touch. Still its a Canadian presence, which is a good thing, who is next?
