Oh, Canada. Sometimes we forget how much talent you hold within your borders.

The number of stellar actors/actresses coming out of the Great White North is nothing short of remarkable. Considering Canada has a smaller population than the entire state of California, it's pretty amazing. Stop and think about it: Ryan Gosling, Cobie Smulders, Christopher Plummer, Jim Carrey, Ellen Page ... the list goes on and on.

So in honour of Canada's 147th birthday on July 1, we present to you our very favourite Canadian movie actors.

We couldn't possibly name every single Canadian film actor out there, so we just chose a few of our favourites. If there is a very glaring omission, please let us know and we might include!
