How Much These Canadian Celebrities Made In Just 2019 Alone

They're doing well for themselves!

This year has been pretty big for entertainers with huge box office flicks, tons of Netflix Originals, and world tours. Everyone's had their own individual success and ventures, and some of the highest-paid celebrities include Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner. In the land up North, Canadian celebrities' income in 2019 are numbers we can only dream of. 

All of the salaries are according to The World's Highest-Paid Celebrities list by Forbes. The reported net worths come from Celebrity Net Worth

Ryan Reynolds

Reynolds' projects this year include Pokémon Detective Pikachu, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, and the Netflix Original, 6 Underground. The actor's total net worth is $75 million but according to Variety, his role in the Netflix film earned him $27 million which topped their list. He also owns the companies, Mint Mobile and Aviation American Gin.

Celine Dion

The legendary singer came in last place just before Shawn Mendes on Forbes' list. But don't let that fool you because she still took home $37.5 million, which is only a smidge of her $800 million net worth. Her earnings come from the album, Courage, that released in November and the Courage World Tour that began in September and will go into 2020.

Shawn Mendes

In the same ballpark as Dion, Mendes made $38 million which came largely from Shawn Mendes: The Tour that took him around the globe from March and ends in a few days. Keep in mind that the Pickering born singer is only 21-years-old with a net worth of $22 million, and he's the youngest person on Forbes' list.

The Weeknd

Though he's been pretty quiet this year, The Weeknd still took home $40 million from a variety of singles and appearances. His net worth is about $90 million, which is really impressive considering he had a pretty difficult childhood and hasn't even hit 30-years-old yet.


The Toronto rapper beat out Kim Kardashian West with an income of $75 million. His net worth is $170 million, and Celebrity Net Worth also reported that he makes $70 million per year so he actually overshot his usual number. Amazingly, his $6.7 million mansion only made a small dent in his bank account. On top of a rapping career, Drake also executive produced Euphoria and Top Boy this year.

Dwayne Johnson

Unsurprisingly, Johnson made the top 100 list in fifteenth place. He earned $89.4 million from projects including Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Ballers, and Jumanji: The Next Level. That adds to his $320 million net worth.
