Who We Are

by Sydney Binnington September 14, 2015 2 Comments

Canalien was created by Canadians travelling abroad. They were always proud to represent Canada throughout their travels, and the more miles they travelled, the more Canadians and fans of Canada they met.

They wanted to start a company to promote the ever-changing Canadian identity. We continue to evolve as a country, and as a people. Our population is constantly diversifying. As are our minds, as we feed our reputation of being avid, open-minded and accepting travellers.

The Canalien is a proud Canadian who also embraces the 'alien' way of life. Of exploring foreign lands and cultures, of seeking adventure, and also welcoming like-minded people along the way. 

Canalien is a mentality, a way of life. It's promoting the Canadian way, of balancing progression with tradition, with welcoming people of all walks of life and wanting to learn as much as we can about our world and it's inhabitants. Our logo is a symbol for equality and acceptance for these things.

Whether you are a visitor to Canada living the Canalien life, or, one of the many Canadians travelling abroad. You are one of the lucky ones to have access to this incredible country, and the freedom to experience all of the wonderful diversity this world has to offer. Join the team, and wear your Canalien with pride.

 With LOVE,

The Canalien Crew

The Love Affair Collection stems from a personal Tale of Two Cities. Mainly because it involves a character named Sydney, a couple cities and tbh it rly was "the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness".

I made this collection for other Canaliens who may have left part of themselves in another city, too. I feel ya! Be proud of your nomad-icity.
