Developed by founder CEO Edmar Xavier and graphic designer Barbara Camargo, the 10 Year Countdown program is EXA Group Canada's international commitment to creating sustainable communities. The program aims to be implemented in Canada's Atlantic provinces and strategically develop rural and indigenous demands.

The program has been under constant planning, control, and execution since 2020. During this period, EXA Group Canada visited more than 35 communities in Ontario and Nova Scotia. The first rural tourism mentorship was held in Upper Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, in 2021 and we are prepared to develop new partnerships to execute the program projects.

10 Year Countdown does not grow without communities and companies responsible for social and sustainable development. The program needs support from partnerships to grow and become sustainable. You can participate in different ways:
