Rated 4.6 out of 5 based on reviews


We previously recommended the Beaver Float by the Canadian-designed brand FLOAT-EH and now, for Canada Day, we have our eyes on this maple leaf option. Having personally owned these floats for several summers, I feel confident to recommend them for your next patriotic pool party or summer days on the lake. FLOAT-EH also offers a 3-year limited warranty on their products to ensure customer satisfaction.

Green Beaver Natural Mineral Sunscreen


Amazon, Green Beaver sunscreen, CANVA, Canada Day products

Rated 4.2 out of 5 based on reviews


It doesn’t get much more Canadian than using a sunscreen called Green Beaver! With an SPF rating of 40, this brand offers long-lasting protection that will also moisturize your skin. The features include natural ingredients like zinc, jojoba, and raspberry seed oil with approval from Health Canada. We can’t think of any reasons you wouldn’t take a tube of the beaver on your next picnic or beach day.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 based on reviews


We’ve recommended this hat as one of our favourite sun protection hats for kids before, but this time we’ve chosen a true Canadian pattern. If your summer plans include visiting parks and conservation areas, picnicking, or generally spending time in the great outdoors, remember to pack a sun hat with a strong UPF rating like this one. It features a fully adjustable drawstring, so you can size the hat accordingly as your child grows.

It’s Canada Day and you should be pouring this quintessential sugary gold on EVERYTHING you eat! Everything. This highly-rated maple syrup was harvested in early spring when the weather conditions are ideal for tapping sap. Temperatures must fall below freezing at night and rise above freezing during the day for optimal collection. There are no preservatives or additives making this a sweet, unforgettable treat!
