HermèsEven the French are getting in on the party (we did used to be their colony after all). Hermès' commemorative Into The Canadian Wild scarf is an ode to our 'diverse wildlife and natural habitats,' that include geese, deer, polar bears and (of course) beavers. The scarf is made of luxe silk twill, and proceeds go to eco-charity Evergreen Canada. Oui oui!

SmytheWe're standing on guard for Smythe's crisp, single-breasted Duchess Blazer. Named after Kate Middleton (who wears her navy model on repeat) the patriotic version has a gorgeous gold jacquard maple leaf above a sexy cut out back vent.

Tanya Heath ParisBased in France, Heath has made Great Lake ripples by creating a line of shoes with interchangeable heels. The Canadian ex-pat is showing her red-and-white roots with the release of special Canada 150 heels. At 6.5 cm, they're the perfect height for hoofing it to Stompin' Tom (or Nickelback, no judgement).

RootsUnless you're an actual beaver, it doesn't get more Canadiana than Roots. The company's unisex leather and wool jacket is vintage-style with a giant C up front and graphic map of Canada on the back. If this doesn't inspire you to make love in a canoe, nothing will.
