This year on July 1 (Canada Day), Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary of Confederation. Communities across the country will be hosting arts and culture festivals, fireworks, exhibitions and sporting events and proud Canadians will come together to toast the nation’s birthday.

As someone who came to Canada as an immigrant when I was just seven years old, I’m proud of my adopted homeland and all it stands for. Canada isn’t perfect – far from it – but I think most Canadians will agree that there’s no other country they would rather call home. As we get set to gather with friends and family on this sesquicentennial celebration, there are a few things that make me grateful to live in this beautiful country:

  1. Tolerance.  Canadians are known the world over for their acceptance of others. In fact, the Legatum Prosperity Index lists Canada as #2 when it comes to tolerance towards immigrants and sexual orientation. Canada was the first country in the world to adopt multiculturalism as an official policy. In 1971, the nation’s plurality of languages, ethnicities and religions became protected by law. Canada has been a trailblazer when it comes to LGBT matters, becoming the third country in the world to introduce same-sex marriage in 2005.
  2. Socialized Medicine. The system isn’t flawless, but our publicly funded healthcare system, Medicare, is mostly free and gives healthcare access to all Canadians.
  3. Concern for Others. The Social Progress Index  lists Canada as very high when it comes to basic human needs, foundations of well-being, and opportunity.

I’ll be kicking off Canada Day by hosting a family brunch complemented by maple syrup, of course. Then it’s off to a party where I hope to show off my dancing shoes.

Whatever your plans for this historic event, Happy Canada Day!

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Dear Sandy,

Thank you for your review. We're so pleased to hear that our deodorant is working very well for you! We're always happy to receive feedback from our customers as we try to improve our products. We will take your comment into consideration to improve the formulation. Thank you!

Terrible Rash

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again

It works!

Happy to finally found a natural deodorant that actually works- worth every penny. Excited to try more scents, especially the lavender when it is back in stock.

My new fave

This cream is my new fave. It's moisturizing without being greasy and absorbs well. The scent is crisp and clean without being overpowering. My husband and son have started using it and love it too! Might need another one to keep by the kitchen sink.
