Instagram, one of the hottest social media platforms out there, is home to some of the most popular social media celebrities. While some have created their account to make Canadian followers laugh, others are there to inspire with their great taste in fashion. Rest are experts in their respective fields, constantly educating and helping others hone their skills. The ones holding their accounts are not just individuals but brands too. Even Canada casino brands share their social presence through Instagram. They inform players about their promotions, including free spins, welcome bonuses and validity period to attract new gamblers and retain existing ones.
If you consider each of them individually, you will realise that all have a thing common in them. They provide value to their audience. Now, many do so, but only a handful have made it to the top 10 Canadian personalities, enjoying maximum followers on Instagram. We are here today to disclose a few of them. You would be surprised to learn that a lot of your favourite actors, singers and performers occupy the list, and you might be following quite a few of them already.
Instagram Creators Popular in Canada
Let’s get along without further ado and explore all the famous content creators on Instagram who enjoy favourable follower count.
- LeBron James (kingjames)
Renowned as kingjames on Instagram, he is one of the finest basketball players the NBA has ever had. The fact that he mouthed the Canadian national anthem and showed off his love for the country makes him widely beloved among Canadians. People are glad that he at least tried. Currently, he enjoys 123M followers, of which 3.1M are Canadians. The figure is enormous, and if you combine the follower count of NHL, NBA, MLB, WNBA and NFL sports leagues, he will still beat them.
- Aubrey Drake Graham (champagnepapi)
Only a few singers have popularised R&B, and Drake is one of them. By profession, he is a Canadian singer and rapper who holds the highest rank among certified digital singles artists in the US. A multi-award winner, he is nicknamed Champagne Papi and hailed as someone who brought sadness into modern music. Currently, he enjoys a fan following of 112M of which 5.8M hail from Canada.
- Dwayne Douglas Johnson (therock)
Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, maybe an American actor, but he is also a citizen of Canada. The international superstar has amassed 320M followers on Instagram. It can be attributed to his engaging posts on fitness, entertainment and projects he has worked on over the years. Watching him pass the 200M follower mark way back was nothing short of a feat. His journey has been remarkable from the wrestling ring to the big screen. Considering his achievements in business, sports and entertainment, it’s no surprise that he is one of the most-followed Instagram accounts in Canada.
- Justin Bieber (justinbieber)
Who isn’t aware of this singer and songwriter! But not many know that he is also Canadian. As recorded by Bloomberg on CrowdTangle, the King of Pop Music enjoyed 126.8M interactions back in 2021. This figure is the closest to BTS, the South Korean boys’ group. Ever wondered what made him so popular? It is undoubtedly his oodles of female fans, who hail from the Gen-Z and millennials demographic – the segment that makes up the most active users on Instagram. Presently, he is followed by 239M users, including Canadians, for obvious reasons.
- Nicholas Teddy Amyoony (nickeh30)
Did you think our list included celebrities only? Of course not. Let’s break the chain by mentioning the gaming video creator – Nick. Born and brought up in Canada, the influencer/ gamer is praised often for his live streaming, lifestyle vlogs and gaming content. He is no less than a celebrity in the world of social media, where he enjoys a fan following of 3.4M. He got his fame from sharing posts on lifestyle, adventure, travel and bits and pieces from his daily life.
- Justin Trudeau (justinpjtrudeau)
He may be a loving father and husband to his family members, but to the Canadian population, he is their Prime Minister since 2015. He is the first to hold that prestigious position in the age of Instagram. From his posts, it can be said that he has a sunny disposition, is open-minded and supports feminist causes. Pictures showing him in LGBTQ parades and offering speeches on women’s equality satisfactorily back up the claim. There is little wonder why he enjoys 4M followers on Instagram!
- Jimmy Donaldson (MrBeast)
This one account is quite interesting as it introduces itself as someone who yearns to make the world a better place to live. Run by Jimmy Donaldson – an American YouTube personality, the account managed to amass 18.7M followers. Over 529K among them are Canadians who enjoy the detritus of many videos, the prank he plays and the stunts he performs. The dazzling cash giveaways are another point of interest for them. Although there is nothing with him to do with Canada, he is still a favourite public figure among its citizens.
