The true north, strong, and slightly less free. With social interaction being at a low, it's easy to feel like you're alone. Though nothing brings us together faster than a bit of patriotism. Locals and a few celebrities came together to sing the Canadian National Anthem in the greatest sign of solidarity.

The uplifting video was posted on Twitter Wednesday morning, and it's the proper dose of unity that we didn't know we needed. 

In the video, clips of different Canadians singing "O Canada" are seamlessly pieced together with some sitting in front of the flag or standing against a blanket of snow.

The ages of participants ranged from toddlers to adults, and included families singing along.

Most notably seen were the Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott. While both were shown in the video, the twins were noticeably social distancing from each other.

Along with other HGTV stars like Bryan and Sarah Baeumler from Island of Bryan and Scot McGillivray from Income Property.

The video was posted by Canada Together, a national initiative created to help Canadians "band together" and find support as they continue to navigate the current COVID-19 pandemic. 

With #CanadaTogether, the movement invites others to submit their own video of them singing the national anthem. They will combine those shared posts and make more compilation videos.

Their plan is to post weekly videos of Canadians throughout the country singing the anthem. This show of solidarity will help "support essential service workers on the front lines of this crisis" they mentioned in the tweet. 

These will be posted every Sunday at noon.

Some users are applauding the video and the message it aims at uniting the nation. And even suggested ways to make it even more inclusive.

"Wow so good! Thank you to make this! We really need a French version for our Francophone friends, if we can add aboriginal languages like Cree and Inuktitut on it, that should be the best! #CanadaStayStrong #Canda Together."

Other Canadians have also leaned on the national anthem to show togetherness.

The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District posted on Youtube a video of hundreds of students, teachers, and staff also singing “O Canada."

The adorable video even had a surprise cameo of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

With constant updates on the current COVID-19 crisis consuming our day-to-day lives, it's a nice break to see how Canadians are coming together and making the best out of the situation.
