And while this brand cherishes beloved Canadiana staples, they’re also about modernizing what it means to be Canadian. If you’re looking for casual luxury that can be brought to the beach, worn at the cottage or even in the city, look no further. Follow their truth north journey: @provinceofcanada

Lake Simcoe Coffee: It’s time to trade in your double-double for a local roast that tastes better than your average bean. Lake Simcoe Coffee, born and bred just north of the city, is incredibly new, seriously just hitting the pavement. So, show your support by buying a cup at your local market, or simply following their brewing journey @lakesimcoecoffee
