The spring campaign highlights Canadians’ renewed appreciation for outdoor activities and connecting with nature. Canada’s only exclusively digital outdoor retailer, Altitude Sports, launches its Spring 2021 campaign “New Found Respect” to recognize how Canadians have significantly embraced the outdoors since the beginning of the pandemic. 

Following the lockdowns over the past year, consumers have a newfound appreciation for things previously taken for granted, including nature, slower living, physical and mental health and being active outdoors in their own community. With over 400 brands and accelerated delivery across Canada, Altitude Sports is helping people embracing outdoor adventure and urban exploration. 

The creative highlights a renewed appreciation for outdoor activities, through four themes: the adrenaline high of running, escapism through cycling, exploring the new improved comforts of camping, and taking the time to appreciate nature through hiking. 

“Each element of the creative is designed to evoke a specific moment in time and the emotion around re-appreciation for outdoor activities,” says Louis-Dominic Parizeau, Vice President Marketing. “Within the campaign we have integrated the best-performing brands offering durable and credible outdoor style with an urban fashion aesthetic.”
