Canada is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet and also one of the biggest. Throughout the country, you’ll find awesome cities such as Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal, incredible scenery such as the Canadian Rockies, lakes and national parks, as well as maritime areas such as Cape Breton on the East Coast.
Having so much variety means there are endless beautiful things to photograph. In this post I will tell you some of the best Canadian photographers and accounts on Instagram, that are worth following for inspiration and to give you ideas on places you must visit.
