Canada Day Giveaway






Canada Day is a great day to celebrate with friends and family.

Celebrate our great nation.



Canada for me stands for a lot. Without our healthcare, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I would have had to sell my house just in order to pay my hospital bills.

The fact that our country is known to be friendly is a big plus.  People love Canadians because we are willing to help out others. We pride ourselves in helping our neighbours. If you doubt that, check out a snowstorm, people come out to help their neighbours attempting to leave their homes for work.

I am proud to be a Canadian.

A place where we say words like chesterfield, tuque and tobagganing.

A place where we play sports like hockey, lacrosse or curling.

A place with beautiful landscapes that change with the seasons.

When someone says Canada, I only think home.


To celebrate Canada Day, I would love to give one lucky Canadian Basics reader a chance to win 3 month basic subscription to Netflix. 

Ends August 1/15 (9am est)

Open to Canadian residents 18+ only

Note: Netflix is not involved with this giveaway. This giveaway is provided by Canadian Basics only.

    I am going to take Being Canadian from a different perspective. When I was younger and travelled to Russia and even when I had a stop over in England , I proudly displayedy Canadian flag pin. This was BC we are and revered as a respectable nation. We are tolerant, kind , and known as a world leader in keeping peace. I had to bring enough pins so that the USA youth could wear them BC it was stressed how important it was that no one know they were American .That sums it up right there .
