Ways to Celebrate Canada Day like a Canadian


Whether you're a Canadian looking to be extra patriotic, an expat living abroad, or new to Canada, here are some tips to make sure you celebrate like a Canadian...in addition to ending sentences with “eh”.

HONOUR YOUR CANADIAN REPUTATION

Canadians are known globally for being friendly and nice - it why we love being Canadian so much! So what could be more Canadian than celebrating our country's birthday with some awesome friends. Make a game out to it and of and go out of your way to be exxxxtraaaa nice, "excuse me, pardon me, I'm sorry, so sorry!". The person who's the nicest wins something - maybe a ticket to hockey game, haha!

REP YOUR COUNTRY

Wear some Red & White, your favourite Canadian sports team jersey, or some sort of apparel that shows your love for this great country like this "Home is Canada" shirt from Peace Collective.

POUTINE BAR

You might not want to spend hours cooking from scratch. Order up a bunch of french fries from a local restaurant, and set up a table with a Make Your Own Poutine Station! Shredded chicken, cheese curds, sriracha, caramelized onions, bacon... make great toppings for your guests to build their own poutine creations!

MAPLE, MAPLE, MAPLE

As the largest producer of Maple Syrup in the world, honour our country's sweet gift to the world and use it in creative ways like in a cocktail or to roast veggies!

COOK CANADIAN FOOD

Need help perfecting those Canadian classics? The Chef & The Dish's Canadian Cooking Classes will help you master dishes like Montreal Seasoned Pan Seared Steak, Poutine, Tourtiére and Cedar Planked Salmon - all without leaving home! The Chef & The Dish allows you to cook alongside top chefs from around the world and master iconic dishes with private chef coaching live via Skype.

HEAD OUT TO A LAKE

Canada is covered with the most lakes in the world (although depending on who you ask, Finland may contend). So, it's no surprise that every summer, Canadians love to spend time boating, fishing and swimming at their favourite lake...no matter the temperature of the water. So whether you're living in Canada or abroad, go find a lake and enjoy the view.

DESSERT BAR

Some of Canada's most well-known creations are sweets! If you're hosting a Canada Day party, why not have a dessert bar filled with Canadian favourites like mini beaver tails, Nanaimo bars and butter tarts. Check out The Chef & The Dish's Bars & Butter Tarts class to help make this station something everyone will be talking about.

DRINK LIKE A CANADIAN

Whether it's beer, Canadian Whiskey, VQA wine, or a delicious Caesar (no bloody marys here!) get in the spirit (get it?) and cheers to Canada with a homegrown drink.
