Let’s dig in!

Our tour starts with an influencer who has a penchant for taking us out of Canada…

Meet Michelle, a Canadian makeup artist who is also into skincare and fashion. She’s an advocate for mental health, body positivity, and being 100% you.

Content

Michelle is another one of those Canadian influencers with a feed that clearly shows what she’s offering. Her makeup is extremely creative – bold eyes being her fave. Her fashion posts are amazing too. She often looks like a regular girl trying on clothes in the mirror and we love the relatability factor. She’s also documenting her weight loss journey and even has a paid partnership with @flattummyco as well as skincare brands.

With well over 12k followers across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and a high engagement rate of 4.5%, Michelle could be the Collab partner you’ve been looking for.

Team Canada, stand up! Taylor is a Canadian Beach Volleyball player who has won seven Canadian national titles! Outside the world of sports, Taylor is a microbiologist and an animal shelter volunteer.

Taylor may be closing out our list of Canadian influencers but she’s top of her game. She’s shining in the world of sports but is down to earth when it comes to caring for animals. It’s clear to see that she’s an animal lover – her dogs are consistently featured on her Instagram pages. We get a very wholesome, homely vibe mixed with an (obviously) active lifestyle. It’s awesome.

What we love about Yalda’s content is that her passion clearly shines through for all to see. Whether she’s playing the piano, speaking up on human rights in Afghanistan, proudly dressed in traditional Afghan outfits, or simply showing us her favorite skincare products, there is a depth to Yalda’s delivery of content that keeps us coming back for more.

Additionally, Yalda founded her own traditional Afghan fashion brand. It’s clear to see how proudly Afghan, Yalda is.

Collabs

It’s not often that brands are lucky enough to find an influencer who is extremely passionate about what they do, throwing themselves wholeheartedly into projects that align with their interests. That’s why we think Yalda should be next on your list of influencers to partner up with.


Sonya Heath

Sonya Heath TikTok video post highlights

Sonya is a fun-loving mom of 3 with the best bio we’ve seen in a while… “Living a FULL LIFE in an empty nest!… Wife to 1 very patient man…” Yes, mama! We already love Sonya’s vibe.

Content

Once we make it past that awesome bio (hey, the kids are out of the house and Sonya is living her best life – we are here for it), we get to Sonya’s content which grabs your attention almost instantly.

Do you ever wish you could get some insider travel tips? Well, Sonya is a travel agent and she does exactly that. Across her Instagram and TikTok, you will find travel tips and tricks from how to book an all-inclusive trip, information on what a last-minute deal actually is, and more.

Then there’s another side of Sonya… again, she gives great tips for the home which anyone would be grateful to know. From cleaning hacks to ideas for stocking stuffers over Christmas, she has it all.

With a current following of 138k and an engagement rate of 5.2%, Sonya brings a fresh perspective to her content which her followers are absolutely in love with.

Content

With just shy of 218k Instagram followers and an engagement rate of 4.7%, Kristel’s content is clearly a winner amongst her followers. Fashion is definitely her forté. She’s flawlessly dressed in every picture! Even in just a bikini, best believe it’s a super cute bikini. I don’t know about you, but if I’m going to go to anyone for fashion inspiration, Kristel is top of my list.

Let’s take a look at what her followers have to say:

“So beautiful and amazing look. Love the photo”

“Killing it, dear”

“Thank you so much for the discount”

Debbie Fettback – @worldadventurists

Debbie Fettback | Travel Adventure Posts

Representing British Columbia, Canada is Debbie. While the rest of us struggle to just leave the house on time with 1 child, Debbie somehow manages to not only get her family of 6 out of the house but around the world as well, capturing it all for us to see.

Content

Her content has all of the wow factors you’d expect to see of a successful travel influencer – awesome views, adrenaline-inducing adventures, romantic sunsets – leaving us all consumed by wanderlust. However, her Instagram feed could just as easily pass as a family photo album – authentic, warm shots of the family with everyone clearly having some good ol’ quality family time. This combo of wow and family is clearly working as her social media following totals almost 54k across Instagram and Facebook. Her good engagement rate of 2.3% might have something to do with it…

Her captions are always pretty detailed and she’s sure to let you know what to add to your bucket list! Something that should definitely be on your bucket list is a Collab with @worldadventurists.

We love Hannah’s open-book approach, sharing how she was diagnosed with 2 chronic illnesses as a child, her upbringing, how she recovered from an eating disorder, and the steps she has taken to become the confident-mindset junkie she is today.

From Quebec, we’ve got Cyrine. She’s a software engineer, lifestyle content creator, wife, lover of travel and adventure, and fashionista.

Content

Based on that intro, this Canadian influencer has a lot going on. However, she does a fantastic job of putting it all together and roping in her 19k+ Instagram followers along her journey. More like JOURNEYS though coz Cyrine travels a lot. Sometimes she’s exploring Canada, other times she’s overseas.

What we love about her feed is that it doesn’t feel staged. It’s her life as she’s living it and she’s living it in the best way. No bad vibes here, just fun light energy. Love it! Looking to Collab with Canadian lifestyle influencers? Cyrine’s your gal.

Self-love, self-care, and inner peace mixed with a bit of IDGAF – that’s what Vivian’s Instagram feed says and it’s perfect.

Leather pants, bright orange outfits, afros, thigh-length braids, and walking shots as if she’s been photographed by the paparazzi. LOVE IT!

Madi Bergen – @madismysteries

Madi Bergen | Canadian Book Influencer | Instagram Posts

Based in British Columbia, Madi is a law student and bookworm with a passion for mysteries and thrillers. “Life’s more fun with a little mystery”. Got that right!

Content

Well, this is refreshing. It’s not often you come across a book influencer – or maybe I just need to read more. Point is, this is something a little different from the more popular influencers and to add to Madi’s quote above, “Life’s more fun with a little mystery and variety”.

Her feed looks AMAZING and inspires those scrolling through to look for a good book to read. “What should I read,” you may ask. Thankfully Madi shares what she’s reading as well as the corresponding synopsis so you don’t judge a book by its cover 😉 Her followers can also look forward to honest book reviews and recommendations.

She’s also one of the hosts of @wineandcrimebc, a bi-monthly true crime book club! So many opportunities for Collabs with Madi – she’s done a few already. Don’t miss out.


Eleni Chountalos – @muaeleni

Eleni Chountalos | Canadian Makeup and Fashion Influencer

Another Canadian influencer representing British Columbia is Eleni Chountalos. She’s a makeup guru who also enjoys sharing fashion inspo. She’s also an advocate for body positivity – something we all need no matter our size!

Content

Ok, let’s talk about her makeup first because wow this beauty influencer is talented! She’s great at using makeup to enhance her beauty, but she also creates characters and alter egos with it. Her creativity and skill are off the charts!

Eleni also has a goal to help people feel good in their own skin. How is she doing that? By putting herself out there and showing her own journey to self-love. WE LOVE IT. What a great way to lead by example.

If you’re looking for an influencer actively promoting beauty and fashion with an emphasis on body positivity, Eleni is the one to choose. I’m sure all of her 27k+ followers would agree.


Kim Williams

Kim Williams IG winter posts

Quebec, stand up! Kim Williams is a mom, lifestyle influencer, and radio influencer who is all about chasing your dreams and girl power.

Content

Sometimes you come across an Instagram page that’s great to look at. @kimoune is one of those pages. Before delving deeper into her content, one of your first thoughts is, “wow, what a good-looking Instagram page!”

Of course, we have to delve deeper and we still like what we see! Her captions are mostly in French and often detailed whether she’s sharing fashion content, proudly showing off her strong-willed daughter, or sharing other lifestyle content.

We love how Kim’s personality comes through not only in her pictures and video but through her captions as well. There’s something genuine, real, and relatable that immediately captures your attention.

As a brand, if these are qualities you look for in a Collab partner, Kim Williams should be top of your list of Canadian influencers to reach out to.


Tasmin Dhaliwal – @tasdhaliwal

Tasmin Dhaliwal | Canadian Influencers Featured on Afluencer

A fashion and beauty blogger from Toronto, Tasmin serves up a great mix of content for her almost 117k Instagram followers. With a fantastic engagement rate of 4.6%, it’s no wonder Tasmin’s influence keeps growing.

Content

On this Canadian influencer’s feed, you won’t only find beauty and fashion but humor, inspirational posts, tips, hacks, and 100% truthin’! Everyone needs at least one of these things in their life. When it comes to fashion, inspiration is a-plenty. She effortlessly transitions from everyday looks – leggings, jeans, cute dresses – to looking like a goddess in her cultural wear.

Oh and let’s not forget swimwear.

From video to pictorial or written content, Tasmin has her feed on point. In our opinion, here lies a Collab goldmine.


Madison Smith – @madisons.16

Madison Smith | Parenting Influencer

Madison is based in Ontario and is a mom influencer/ parenting influencer with a joyous approach to life – a little humor and positivity don’t hurt anyone. We completely agree.

Content

Madison’s infectious smile and her baby’s cute little face have me SOLD. You cannot help but feel all warm inside witnessing that unfiltered, pure relationship between a mother and child.

Other posts to look forward to include fashion, food, and (more) family. What more do you need? We love the authenticity of this Canadian influencer’s feed. She’s also got her Collab game locked down, featuring multiple partnerships with brands in different industries. This mom is getting things done.


Josh Rimer – @joshrimer

Josh Rimer | Canadian Gay Influencer

Say hello to Mr. Gay Canada 2019, Josh! He’s also an amazing travel influencer and an underwear model at the age of 44! Love it!

Content

If you search for the definition of ‘Gay Pride,’ Josh’s Instagram feed is sure to pop up! And we can’t help but love this kind of in-your-face this-is-who-I-am take-it-or-leave-it vibe. When it comes to his travel content, a lot of it has an LGBTQ angle to it such as, “My Visit to 3 LGBTQ-friendly Cities in Britain” or highlighting an LGBTQ river cruise.

There’s so much positivity emanating from Josh and his content, that you’re going to want to Collab and tap into all the Canadian influencer has to offer.


Tanvir Kaur – @iamtkayy

Tanvir Kaur | Instagram Posts Promoting Products | Canadian Influencers

Tanvir is a Canadian influencer based in British Columbia. She loves sharing content about a few of her favorite things – skincare, perfume, and high-end accessories.

Content

Ah, the finer things in life. Tanvir’s Instagram feed looks like I imagine it to smell like – romantic, pretty, calm, if such scents exist! She’s a self-proclaimed dreamer and romanticizer of life – and it shows. From a Marc Jacobs compact to Gucci shoes, face rollers to perfumes – it’s a lifestyle and she’s living it.

She generally recommends products she has tried for herself, and she’s very active in the comments section (her engagement rate is a whopping 6.1%) – something her 11.1k Instagram followers will surely appreciate. Another thing followers can look forward to? Discount codes! Thanks to her partnerships with various brands.


Emma Lindeman – @lovelylittlelocal

Emma Lindeman | Canadian Micro-influencers Featured on Afluencer

Next up in our roundup of Canadian influencers is Emma. Based in Ontario and she’s not only passionate about supporting local businesses but ethical brands as well. Her goal is to “spread awareness of how we can all lead sustainable lives and help local and ethical brands grow and reach their full potential”.

Content

First of all, kudos to Emma for helping support the little guy – the local business people. And as a micro-influencer herself, she understands the importance of this. Her feed is really bright and positivity-inspiring. She features local and ethical brands, giving her followers tips on where to go, where to eat, and so much more. For entrepreneurs, she gives business tips such as how to go grow on Instagram.

She’s also got a few Collabs in her pocket. If local and/or ethical businesses are right up your alley, this could be a great partnership for you.


Emily Durham – @emily.the.recruiter

Emily Durham | Social Media Posts

Next in our round-up of Canadian influencers hails from Ontario—Emily Durham aka “The Straight Shooter Recruiter”. She works as a recruiter (duh) sharing her experiences and extremely helpful tips with her almost 209k followers.

Content

If you’ve got a job interview lined up you’re going to want to check Emily’s page out and not skim through this one (we see you, skimmers). Emily isn’t the Straight Shooter for nothing. Her posts are extremely helpful and straight to the point – from how to fake confidence to long-standing career advice you probably should ignore; from phone interview tips to relatable problems such as how to tell if an interview went well (spoiler alert, you can’t).

Here’s a glimpse into her comment section:

– “This is the truth that everyone lies about.”

– “Saving this to watch 10 minutes before my interview.”

– “Hah. Ain’t this the truth.”

– “Yassssssss!”

Need we say more? Real talk right here.
