Let’s be honest, there are generally only two reasons a Canadian will be patriotic—either we’re hosting the Olympics, or it’s July 1. Celebrating Canada Day is something that we do, even if many of us don’t really fully understand how Canadian history works. Like, how do we celebrate independence, when technically we’re part of the Commonwealth? Politics are confusing… Luckily, music isn’t. Here are the staff picks for our favourite Canadian jams!


  1. Is This What You Wanted by Leonard Cohen (Katie)
  2. Cut to the Feeling by Carly Rae Jepsen (Rebecca)
  3. Goodbye Weekend by Mac DeMarco (Jessica)
  4. We Were Here by Lights (Jerrison)
  5. Fairy Tale by Saint Asonia (Caroline)
  6. Resurrection by Moist (Brittney)
