Game Of Thrones Premiers Tonight And Canadians Are Losing Their Minds

The time we have all been waiting for is finally here. If you somehow have been living under a rock and didn't already know, the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones is airing tonight and the long-awaited first episode is finally here. As we become mere hours from the first airing of the season, the anticipation is real. Game of Thrones is premiering tonight and Canadians are losing their minds. 

It's the beginning of the end to the show that has captured the hearts of Canadians for the past eight seasons. Whether you have been with the series from the beginning or have binged watch the past seven seasons this month to avoid FOMO of watching season eight live, the time has come for us to finally draw the series to an end. After 47 Emmys and a record-breaking amount of views, it's safe to say that a majority of the world will be tuning in to catch the first episode tonight. 

It also helps that this year, watching Game of Thrones in Canada has finally become a lot easier. Crave will be streaming the season in Canada so you can actually watch it as soon as possible. So if you're in a panic in trying to figure out a way to watch the season, Crave subscribers can sign up online for $22.38 a month, but the first month of the trial is free. 

Of course, now that Canadians are able to legally watch Game of Thrones with the rest of the world, we are freaking out over the premiere of Season 8. 

Canadian fans have taken over Twitter in preparation for tonight. Some Canadians are just waiting in anticipation, while others are so excited that they can't contain themselves. 

Some people are even threatening to quit their jobs if they don't get off work in time to catch the premier. 

This will be the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. The season will have only six episodes but some will be up to 80 minutes long. It premieres tonight at 9 PM EDT. 

So brace yourself Canada, winter is coming. 

Parliament is officially in session as of Monday, November 22, and Canada's Usher of the Black Rod had a very important part to play in the ceremony.

If you're wondering what exactly it is that Black Rod does (that's the genuine short version of his name, by the way), he's the person at the beginning of the throne speech who ceremoniously leads the Senate Speaker's parade.

I didn't realize how random the English test was going to be!

Hundreds of thousands of people become permanent residents in Canada every year — but if you've been through the process, you'll know that it's anything but straightforward.

As a U.K. citizen in full-time work in Canada, I was able to apply as an Express Entry candidate (you'd think express means it'd be quick, right? Wrong).

Remember Game of Thrones? Or at least, do you remember everything you liked about it before the finale? Because it's coming back with a new prequel set 200 years before the original, in a new HBO series called House of the Dragon.

HBO Max released a one-minute teaser trailer for the show on Monday, offering up the first footage of the white-haired Targaryen family that will be at the center of the series.

In my opinion, body positivity should be implemented and valued across all clothing brands. Although that isn't always the case, more and more companies are hopping on the inclusivity bandwagon — and it's pretty awesome to see if you ask me.
