1. Ten & Lillian
Ted and Lillian's story is one of friendship, perseverance and equality. From a shared childhood in the 1940s to a romantic reconnection in the 1960s.
Today, Ted is 79 years old and would have been married to Lilian 54 years. Sadly she passed away in 2018, but their daughter Missy joined the conversation with our host Nancy Regan to share their amazing story.
2. Jess & Jack
They work on Parliament Hill, but politics has nothing to do with it. Some stories start with a chase, theirs started with a race. Jess and Jack's story is about understanding differences, challenging yourself and finding a connection in an unusual way. Sometimes a 'good luck in the race' can start something special.
3. The Guiping Girls
This is a love story like no other. It challenges your definition of what a family can be.
It’s about a group of people that never intended to seek out an extended family, but through international adoption and a desire to keep together, to love, learn and nurture, they built a bond. A sisterhood. An extended family.
It was love at first sight.
4. Marie & Jamie
Sometimes our wrong turns can teach you what you want in life. And that was the case for Marie. Her love life was a minefield of mistakes until she met Jamie.
After a brief long-distance relationship and a whirlwind romance, Marie and Jamie knew they had found something special … in each other.
5. Devin & Laura
Love can save your life, and Devin and Laura are living proof.
Devin and his twin brother were diagnosed with a degenerative liver disease. As Devin’s condition worsened to stage 4 liver failure, he was placed on the Canadian Transplant Registry to find a perfect match. Enter Laura. Not only his love but also a match. Having been together for three years and watching Devin manage the disease as a warrior and not a victim she offered the ultimate gift. Saved by love.
6. Jay & Olivia
This episode of the Canadian Love Map is about this balance. It’s about turning love inward and outward. You’ll meet Jay and Olivia, who will take you on a journey of discovery. About creating a unique space and helping others find their own way too.
Some say you have to learn how to love yourself before you can truly love someone else. But love is a journey. And the journey with gender isn’t about changing who you are, it’s about giving yourself space to bloom into the person you were meant to be.
8. Bette & Maynard

9. Jami & Samantha
We are often our own worst critics and fail to see ourselves through the eyes of others. What we don't realize is, oftentimes this is the most positive version of ourselves.
For Jami, this manifested in the form of a dating website created by her good friend Sam. The website sparked a positive response to her from others, but most importantly a newfound confidence - one that she may not have found otherwise.
