Just in time for Canada Day, Netflix has released a new clip that celebrates all-things-Canadian. From our very own celebrities, to our home-grown TV shows and iconic movie sets, the mini-film showcases some of the best on-screen moments to have come out of Canada. Netflix’s Canada Day clip is the perfect tribute to our home, and it will have you feeling the right kinds of fuzzy!
July 1 is Canada Day, and it appears that Netflix got the memo.
In honour of our special day, the streaming company created a two-minute long video that celebrates the best of Canadian talent.
From local superstars and home-grown heroes, to familiar movie sets and iconic shows, there’s so much to be proud of in just 120 seconds!
The mini-movie includes moments from Canadian-classics like Schitt's Creek and Kim's Convenience, as well as lesser known debuts, too.
It also pays homage to some of Canada’s most beloved celebrities, including Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogan, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan and Antoni Porowski.
The purpose of the "sizzle reel," according to Netflix, is simply to showcase how “all of these series, films and talent started here in Canada, and are subsequently seen around the world.”
Specifically, by up to 183 million people in 190 different countries!
Throughout the clip, you might recognize several locations from across the country.
From Toronto and Vancouver’s iconic cityscapes, to scenes in Moose Jaw, Matlock and Pictou Landing, it seems there’s little tastes of Canada all over the streaming service.
In fact, these movies and TV shows have been filmed across Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, B.C., Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan and P.E.I.

You’ll also spot several familiar famous faces such as Finn Wolfhard, Shay Mitchell, Amanda Stephen and Nathan Fillon.
If you’re suddenly feeling all patriotic and want to celebrate Canada Day with a made-in-Canada movie or TV show, there’s plenty to choose from.
If there's one take-home from this Netflix clip, it's that Canada clearly has tons of talent!
What a place to call home, eh?
