10 Canadians You Should Be Following On Instagram

Canada is about to turn 150 and in another 150 years when we look back on where we were as a country today, a lot of information will be learned from social media.

To celebrate Canada’s 150, we’re taking a lot at some of our favourite Canadians to follow on Instagram.

From CanCon-ful celeb pics, to images showing off our beautiful country, here are 10 Canadian Instagram accounts that will help you celebrate the red and white all year long.


1. Justin Bieber

He’s the most followed Canadian on Instagram and with more than 70 million followers, you could say everyone in Canada is already following the Biebs. Some are even following him twice. The pop star took some time away from social media recently, but has thankfully returned and gifted us with amazing throwback pics like this.

Toronto YouTuber Lilly Singh has become the blueprint for how to forge your own career path. The social media star is now a best selling author, a movie star, and besties with The Rock. Plus, she reps her home country everywhere she goes.


3. Jus Reign

In only a few short years, Much Creator Jus Reign has become one of the godfathers of the social media and comedy movement. Thanks to his hilarious posts and social commentary, Jus Reign is giving the next generation of Canadians a space to feel like they belong.


4. Drake

When you’re the biggest rapper in the world, you get to meet the biggest musicians of all time and for Toronto-born Drake, that includes meeting many of his idols from his childhood. Thankfully, Drake prescribes to the ‘pics or it didn’t happen’ mantra.

After bursting onto the music scene in the early 2000s, Napanee native Avril Lavigne hasn’t stopped ruling the charts since.

6. Far and Wide
