    Apparently, no.
    You can take the train, though.

    No buses? Even local to local to local, etc? I'm surprised. Always heard great things about Canada's rail system though.

    The bus from Ontario into Manitoba only runs twice a week but it can be done. Toronto to Vancouver by plane, bus, train, line 5601 bus, car

    If you're getting as far as Calgary you might as well cross the Rockies and down to the Pacific, you've done most of the distance already. What you've seen is lots of flat bits, the rest of the way is lots of impressive gradients and the occasional very blue lake.

    I took a look at the Greyhound website. They have bus service between Ontario cities and Toronto to US cities, but, but Bus service in Alberta is limited within that Province. You can take the train from Toronto to Edmonton, and then bus to Calgary.
    Canada is BIG!
    Though I have it from a friend that hitchhiking is still an acceptable means of transportation in the western provinces.

    And carrying an axe while hitchhiking is expected, on account of the bears.
