When the goal of a company is to be the force behind integrity-rich media that promotes the economic, personal and ecological growth of its readers- it’s hard not to love them. NOW Magazine are a reliable news and entertainment source, where the coolest Torontonians get their social, cultural, and political fix. Unlike some other news outlets, they are actually fair and balanced. They don’t even need to brag about it! Their readership is expanding on the daily, and they’ve managed to achieve all of their goals while being faithful to their community and their environment. They make us proud to say We The North!

Why we love them:

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?

Why we love them:

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!

Why we love them:

Founded in 1993 by Peter Oliver and celebrity chef Michael Bonacini, Oliver & Bonacini is recognized as one of Canada’s leading independent restaurant and event groups. From barbecue joints and brewpubs, to modern French and artisanal Canadian fine dining, O&B runs a diverse portfolio of unique and innovative restaurants including the critically acclaimed Canoe, Biff’s Bistro, Leña, Bannock and Luma. With several restaurants located in the heart of downtown Toronto, JFL42 guests are always just a hop, skip and a jump away from enjoying delicious chef-driven cuisine, handcrafted cocktails and top-notch service.

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.
