15 Canadian Influencers on Our Radar

Nicole P. Dunford


In this round-up of influencers, we’re headed to Canada. Did you know it’s the second-largest country by area? So you know there’s gonna be a lot of talent going on here. We’ve got beauty, fashion, sports, and so much more going on in this list. Some humility, some attitude, and a whole lot of positivity. These Canadian influencers are the cream of the COLLAB crop.

Let’s dig in!

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

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.


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.

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.


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.

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.


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.

Naazneen Lalji – @justmyglam

Naazneen Lalji | Fashion and Beauty Posts | Canadian Influencers

From Alberta is this Canadian influencer, Naaz. Her passion for beauty and fashion is clear to see ‘coz she be serving lewks!


Wow. Just wow.


Variety of looks

Sex appeal

Great captions

High engagement rate

Naaz sure knows how to deliver. Whether she’s got a beat face or a bare face, covered up or showing some skin, she nails it EVERY SINGLE TIME. She’s also got quite a lot of partnerships going on too with brands in the beauty, fashion, jewelry, and skin care industries – so she’s a Collab pro.

All I can say is “Yassss Naaz. Yaaaassss”. Excuse me while I throw out everything in my wardrobe.

Cyrine Larbi – @cyrinelarbi

Cyrine Larbi | Lifestyle Social Media Posts

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


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.

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!


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.

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.


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.

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”.


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.

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!


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.

Kelsey Hoey – @kelx44

Kelsey Hoey | Beauty and Skincare Products

The next talent from our list of Canadian influencers is based in Saskatchewan and has a passion for beauty, skincare, and wellness.


No arguments there. A quick glance at her feed will tell you it’s clear to see what Kelsey is all about. Judging by her bare-faced skin, she knows what she’s doing. She’s like the skincare whisperer! Plus, her posts are super detailed, highlighting the benefits of the products, prices, and so much more. She’s got 10k+ followers and a superb engagement rate of 5.9%.

With all these products featured on her page, you know ya girl is killin’ the Collab game. If you’re a skincare or makeup brand and you’re experiencing some FOMO right now, best get in touch with Kelsey!

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!


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.

Michelle Raymond – @michelles_empire

Michelle Raymond | Makeup Artist | Promoting Products

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.


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.

Vivian Ochuwa – @_ochuwa_

Vivian Ochuwa | Instagram Posts | Canadian Influencers on Afluencer

Based in Ontario, Vivian loves boosting the confidence of her followers by emanating her own confidence and expressing herself through fashion.


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. Her outfit choices are trendy, her poses full of confidence, and her captions are straight to the point. Leather pants, bright orange outfits, afros, thigh-length braids, and walking shots as if she’s been photographed by the paparazzi. LOVE IT!

I’m sure her 13.8k Instagram followers would agree that Vivian’s feed is a vibe. Come on over and experience it for yourself. And if you dig working with confident Canadian influencers, then invite Vivian to your collab program.

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.


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.

Taylor Pischke – @taylor_pischke

Taylor Pischke | Canadian Beach Volleyball Pro Player

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.

She’s also got a few partnerships with brands in food and skincare. This sports star is one Collab partner not to miss.

These Canadian influencers are all on the rise in their respective categories. Something worth mentioning is the thread of positivity that connects them all. We love the vibes they’re sending out – their influence is sure to increase. Prime Collab opportunities right here. Canada, this was a blast.
