When it comes to the holidays, it seems celebrities are just like us! Nothing beats getting away, slowing down and enjoying the moment, while spending a little quality time with the family. So whether it's the Christmas holidays, Thanksgiving holidays, or even a summer vacation - these celebs love it here in Canada. Celebrity vacation spots in Canada are during the holiday season too!
Some celebrities definitely like to get away to different countries during the holidays. They're super overworked during the year, so the holiday season may be the only downtime they get. A lot of them actually have vacation homes in Canada, and just because there's snow on the ground, doesn't mean it's not a vacation.
Here are 6 celebrities who come to Canada frequently over the holidays. Be sure to keep a lookout this holiday season for these big names.
Back in Vancouver filming for the Christmas movie The Christmas Chronicles 2, Kurt Russell will be in Canada over the holiday season for a second year. Russell was spotted in downtown Vancouver last year filming for the first movie, alongside his wife Goldie Hawn who also makes a brief appearance in the first film. The couple has been known to frequent Canada, they previously owned a property in the Muskoka area for years before eventually selling it.
It's no surprise that Justin Bieber has been seen in Canada over the holidays many, many times. Just last year his wife Hailey was spotted visiting the Toronto Christmas Market after posting a few pics to Instagram. Always a Canadian at heart, Bieber was raised in Stratford, Ontario.
When he's not too busy filming for his latest projects, Ryan Reynolds can be spotted off-screen being dad and husband of the year. And while it's no secret that Reynolds is a Vancouver boy at heart, (I mean have you seen his Instagram handle?!) he is known to visit Van City whatever chance he gets to see his family. Chances are his wife Blake Lively maybe with him as well, so keep your eyes peeled around town! Recently she gifted Reynolds with this painting of his childhood home in Vancouver.
It's no surprise that Shay Mitchell loves Canada. Born in Mississauga, Mitchell moved to Vancouver, BC in her childhood and is still known to frequent the area to visit her family and the holidays, of course, are no exception. One year she was photographed at Quarry Rock in North Vancouver just taking in the scenery.
Also from British Columbia, Michael Bublé grew up in Burnaby and currently owns a house there. Since his son Noah was diagnosed with cancer in 2016, the star took some much-needed time off to be with his family at home. His mansion in Burnaby, which finished building in 2018, is actually said to be located across the street from his childhood elementary school. Rumour has it, Bublé almost always makes it home to Canada for the holidays!
Another BC native, child actor Jacob Tremblay can typically be spotted in the Metro Vancouver area over the holidays. Tremblay is originally from Langley, British Columbia and made his big break back in 2015 when he was cast as one of the lead roles in the feature film Room and has gone on to star in many movies. But when the holidays hit, like most kids Tremblay spends time at home with his family.
