Hockey, poutine, cottage country, being polite, and saying “eh” without even noticing, these are the things that I love about being Canadian. What does being Canadian mean to you?

To me, being Canadian means embracing winter, loving the great outdoors, and feeling a sense of pride and wonder of our vast and changing landscapes from coast to coast. From the Rocky Mountains to the fishing villages of Prince Edward Island and in between, Canada has one of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in the world. Canada’s national parks are also a part of our country’s pride – they represent our natural environment, protecting our wildlife and ecosystems.

  1. I’m not Canadian but I have to say that most Canadians I’ve met have been extremely friendly…so that’s what I associate with Canadians.

  2. Scents inspired by national parks? That’s so cool! Canada’s national parks must be as beautiful as you say if Air Wick was inspired to make these products. As an American, I’ve always had the impression that Canada had a lot of beautiful nature to behold.

  3. I loved when Air Wick did the national park series here in the US! I had no idea that they did one in Canada as well! What a great way to show your pride in your country.

    • I think it’s a wonderful collaboration too! Perfect fit. Thanks for visiting 🙂

    Canada has always been intriguing to me. I have always wanted to get a passport an make my way up north across the border. It is on my bucket list! I am excited to try the Canada scents from Air Wick. Are they available to purchase in the US?

    • I’m not sure if they are available in the U.S. or will be, I hope they would be!

  5. I grew up not to far from Niagara Falls and we were up in Canada a lot. I love Canada and would love to live there!

  6. There are a few Canadians in my church and they’re such nice people. We live in Oregon and it’s fun hearing stories from them about their childhoods in Canada and the things they miss. I love how optimistic and positive Canadians are.

    • Aw, thank you! I’d like to think Canadians are generally friendly people 🙂

  7. I love being Canadian – I’m from Newfoundland 🙂

    I think being polite is definitely noticeable to others now, especially now that I live in California. I’m surprised at how I’m treated sometimes, and it really irks me. But I’m not one to start stuff, so I let it slide off my back, but man oh man it’s some hard sometimes to just let things go! Especially when you wanna tell the Amerucin’ off. LOL


    • Interesting! I’m sure you have a ton of stories about living in California, compared to living in Newfoundland. Thanks for visiting!

    Sometimes it’s just daunting to think of the ill-will that is shown to canadians, but there are good and bad canadians, just like how there are good and bad people in the world. And let me just say that this blog really captured the canadian essence because we really love the scents of our national parks.

  9. All the scents sound amazing and what a fabulous contest.

    Nothing beats the fresh smell of nature! I have heard so much about these national parks and I would love to visit them one day.

  10. Hoping to visit Canada next year on a cruise. Plus I want to go to Niagara Falls and have heard the Canadian side is better. Lots of Canadian blogging friends.

  11. I’m not Canadian, but I sure do love everything about the country! The Tim Horton’s, the poutine (oh my Lord, poutine is to die for), the cheddar cheese soup and the beauty of the country in general. The only blemish is some of the rude old folks that come down to Florida in the winter…I’ve worked for a Southern grocery chain for 15 years, and I feel like they get meaner and meaner, when we try to serve nothing but Southern hospitality. 🙁
