Eh-List Celebrity Canadians! (Photo by Matt McNulty/Getty Images for ITF)

How’s she goin’ eh? Canadians hold a special place in our hearts. That’s why you’ll frequently hear about ‘Those Crazy Canadians’ on Dave & Chuck The Freak. However, not every famous Canadian has done something worthy of making the segment. In fact, many celebrities are indeed Canadian. Here are 7 ‘Eh-List’ Celebrity Canadians that everyone knows.

Now, just because everyone knows these celebrity Canadians that have become household names doesn’t mean they know these celebs are Canadian! Of course, some will be obvious than others.

Some of the biggest names in show business are Canadians. There are musicians, actors, comedians, and athletes alike that all hail from Canada. These Canadians are our buddies, they are our guys, and they are our friends. Sorry, South Park.

I decided to do a list of 7 ‘Eh-List’ celebrity Canadians, but there are much more than 7 of them. Limiting the list to only 7 caused a few problems. That meant some big names were being left on the cutting room floor!

Here are some recognizable names of celebrities you might not have known were Canadian that didn’t make the list of 7: Keanu Reeves, Celine Dion, Michael J. Fox, the late Matthew Perry, William Shatner, Will Arnett, Neil Young, and more!

When you look at the full list, it’s actually very impressive! The funniest comedians in the game seem to be from Canada. There’s Mike Myers, Dan Aykroyd, Phil Hartman, and more that we’ll talk about in a minute. Then, the world of rock and roll is no different! You’ve got Chad Kroeger, Avril Lavigne (think they mind being so close to each other on this list?), and who could forget The Barenaked Ladies? Also, I know he’s not rock but I feel like I have to mention Michael Buble because he’s Canadian and I think we’d get along very well.

Regardless, here are 7 ‘Eh-List’ celebrity Canadians!

  • Seth Rogen

    Seth Rogen is one of my favorite people on the planet. He’s hilarious and he seems like a good dude. In other words, the ultimate Canadian! He talks about growing up in Canada a lot. He has a lot of pride for his homeland.

    Honestly, if I could pick one celebrity to hangout with, I’d pick Seth. I have no doubt we’d be good friends.

  • Justin Bieber

    Justin Bieber might not have all the traits that Canadians are known for having, like being pleasant and generally nice, but he still is Canadian! The superstar was born in London, Canada. They might not want to claim him, but it remains true.

  • Jim Carrey

    Jim Carrey is another funny person from Canada. He was born in Newmarket, Canada. One of the funniest people of all-time, in my opinion. You can always count on Jim for a laugh.

  • Drake

    You probably were aware that Drake is Canadian. He talks about it a lot in his music…like a lot! He’s also frequently spotted at Toronto Raptor games. Yeah, he’s Canadian.

  • Ryan Gosling

    Ryan Gosling isn’t just Ken–he’s Canadian! It rhymed better in my head. Ryan proves Canadians aren’t just kind or funny…they can be sexy, too!

  • Pamela Anderson

    Speaking of sexy Canadians, that brings us to Pamela Anderson! Yes, indeed, she is Canadian. She was born in Ladysmith, Canada. She was originally discovered at a BC Lions football game in Vancouver wearing a Labatt’s Beer t-shirt. How Canadian is that??

  • Ryan Reynolds

    Ryan Reynolds is many things: an actor, a soccer team owner, an entrepreneur, a father, a husband, and most importantly–a Canadian. He was born in Vancouver. His father was even a Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman! Very Canada.
