When we entered the Made In Canada Lounge on the set of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, we kind of never wanted to leave. A cozy cabin setting had been created, complete with water feature and fur throws, the perfect setting to showcase Canadian products to talent chatting with Strombo during TIFF.

On display were some quintessentially Canadian items, like Canada Goose parkas, whiskey-flavoured toothpicks from Daneson, buffalo-check bow ties from Gregory Allen, delicious tea from Sloane, chocolate treats from Purdy’s and of course, cozy essentials from Roots.

Aside from all the CanCon, we love that the Made In Canada lounge puts a focus on products with an altruistic bent, like Oliberté and Ron White. Feels good to be Canadian!
