Hey, remember how boring radio was before Sirius XM? Commercials every five seconds, the same playlists, the same inane on-air “personalities” (we use that term VERY loosely), the same everything. Ugh. Lame. But, mercifully, no more. Sirius XM broadcasts more than 120 satellite radio channels (FROM SPACE!) featuring premier sports, news, talk, entertainment and commercial-free music. They also offer an array of content from the most recognized news and entertainment brands as well as from professional sports leagues including the NHL, NFL, MLB and CFL. We dare you to get bored by that. Scratch that, we double dare you. And you know what? That’s not even fair of us to do because it’s literally impossible. Booyah.

Since 2006, Beau’s has been brewing interesting, tasty beers using the best ingredients & local spring water. They take pride in creating unique, wonderful and certified organic craft beer, conceived with honest consideration for the environment and  local communities, and delivered with a sense of friendly relationship. And because they’re an award-winning, local, family-and-friends, organic, and totally DIY brewery. How cool is that? http://beaus.ca/

Canadian Heritage plays a huge role in the cultural happenings around the country. And what is JFL42 if not a cultural happening?! They have a hand in everything from arts, culture, and heritage, which represents $49.9 billion in the Canadian economy and over 630,000 jobs across the country. Who doesn’t love money and jobs, right?! Not only that, but celebration and participation are an important part of Canadian Heritage’s mandate! A governmental body whose purpose is to party? We love it!

Whether it’s centre stage with Arts & Life, in the dugout with their expanded Post Sports section or on the trading floor with the highly regarded Financial Post, each section of The National Post boasts a wealth of critical information and original insight. The coverage they feature from across the country and around the world is delivered with a distinctly Canadian voice and that is why we love them.

Considering that one out of every three Canadians calls Ontario home, you gotta think they’re onto something. The cultural diversity there’s off the charts, to the point that it kind of feels like the whole world’s right outside your door, which, if you think about it, saves you a ton on travel, exposes you to beautiful cultures, and makes for some spectacular eating. It’s also magnet for industry, which makes it a lot easier to find an/or create jobs, and thus, put a little change in your pocket. Ontario’s also a major epicentre of arts and innovation, so if you’re into having your mind blown and your heart swell, they’ve got you covered. Into outdoorsy stuff? Then you’ll probably lose your marbles over the province’s varied landscape, thousands of lakes, mystical forests, and super rad tourism spots. Basically, Ontario’s got something for everyone, which makes sense, given that almost everyone (in Canada) lives there. Feel free to join the party.

When it comes to mentoring content creators and entrepreneurs in the entertainment and digital media landscapes, The Canadian Film Centre (CFC) is where it’s at. By promoting the development of new ideas, production and best practices in film, television, digital media, music and acting, they are uniquely positioned within Canada’s vital and diverse screen entertainment industry.

You gotta love this: with over 100 participants in more than a dozen programs each year, their mandate is to promote and invest in original projects, encourage commercial opportunities and build collaborative relationships between their alumni and media companies.  These guys work together to create and produce popular, award-winning entertainment enjoyed by audiences around the world.

Now that’s pretty cool.

Why we love them:

You need to laugh more than just 10 days out of the year. That’s why there’s the Comedy Network—so you can make with the ha-has year round! They’re also Canada’s first specialty comedy service (there’s a little Canadian pride for ya!) which airs comedy of all kinds, 24-hours-a-day.
