Celebrating 25 Years in Business with Great Partners Like You

In the early 1990s, two brothers started an outdoor adventure company that would go on to become Canadian Outback Adventures & Events.

A Timeline of Canadian Outback Adventures & Events:

1992: Jamie and Steve Corbett start the business as an outdoor adventure company, primarily selling paddling and hiking expeditions.

2000: Long-time customer, McDonalds, asks for an event based on “Survivor.” We say yes, and start the transition to a team building provider.

2010: Addition of smartphone activities and other exciting events to our available programs. Adventures take a back seat to team building solutions.

2015: Our product offerings grow to include team coaching, consulting, and skills and development programs.

2017: Celebrating 25 years in business. Canadian Outback Adventures & Events is continuing to grow and evolve.


“Helping create happy people, both in the organizations we work closely with and in our own, has always been our goal. It’s been so rewarding for everyone here to play a part in doing just that for 25 years. And we’re all excited for what lies ahead in the next 25.”

– Murray Seward, President

“It was the best event ever. Lots of incredible smiles and memories. Your team's customer service quality levels are always exceptional. Your team also ensures that they tie our unique company terminology and any marketing campaigns we may have going on at the time into the intro and comments throughout the event. This was also a unique event created for our team by Canadian Outback Adventures & Events, which the team absolutely loved and generated our highest participation levels ever.”

– Coca-Cola Refreshments
