The Most Important Traits of Canadian Men

Physical Appearance

Canadian guys are sexy, handsome and charming. When it comes to their physical traits, it is quite hard to describe them. This is because Canada is a mix of numerous nations.

With Russian men, you probably know what to expect: blond and tall guys. The same is with other countries: Italy, Venezuela or Spain.

The physical characteristics of Canadian men usually depend on their origin and ancestors. Most Canadians are North Americans and others are either Scottish, Irish, Italian, French or German.

One trait they all have in common is incredible looks.

Deep brown and green eyes are the most frequent, but you can stumble upon hot Canadian men with blue eyes as well.

Handsome Canadian men are tall but smaller than German or Italian men. 

When we are talking about their physical characteristics, another thing that they all have in common is thick and long beards. I know, this is one of the Canadian men stereotypes, but the only true one – I promise!

They don’t just take care of their beards. The overall look is important to them and they make sure to set aside the time for working out.

You won’t ever see a poorly dressed Canadian.

Sexy Canadian men are familiar with fashion trends and they are always dressed for the occasion. I can describe them as stylish and modern.

One brand they all love is North Face and almost every guy is rocking their jacket.

Another thing that stands out is flannel. When you start dating a Canadian guy, you will probably wear more flannel as well. It is their signature look!

Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating

On top of the important physical trait ratings for Canadian men, we have also created our own additional rating from the Canadian men we see on Tinder.  We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single men and how attractive they are.

  • 0-100 is poor
  • 100-200 is OK
  • 200-300 is Good
  • 300 – 400 Is Incredible

Character Traits of Canadian Men

No one can deny the amazing appearance of handsome Canadian guys. However, what’s on the inside is what counts and I’m here to tell you all about what are Canadian guys like.

1. Gentleman Rating

Canadians can be true gentlemen. This is because they are taught to be polite.

However, if you treat them badly, they won’t put up with it and stop acting like cavaliers.

Opening the doors, buying flowers and showering you with compliments is something they do in the beginning, but quickly stop.

This is because they consider you an equal and want the same behavior in return.

You are not their princess, but their companion and you have to show appreciation for these small gestures.

Canadian men are gentlemen

2. Integrity

These guys don’t allow anyone to walk over them.

They know where they come from, what they got and their worth.

I wouldn’t recommend talking down on them even as a joke (unless they first make a funny comment).

Also, Canadian men know what they stand for and no one can change that!

Canadian men have integrity

3. Honesty

These men will always give you an honest answer, but you have to ask them a straight forward question.

They aren’t very talkative and some of their actions can be misunderstood. The best way to avoid this miscommunication is to be open yourself.

Then they will follow your lead and talk to you about any subject honestly.

Canadian men are honest

4. Loyalty

To keep them loyal, make sure to officially declare what you two are.

Are you just casually dating? Is exploring other options okay? Is your relationship official?

If you don’t do this, they will continue seeing other people while still dating you.

Once you decide that this is a serious relationship, they will act loyal and forget about any other girl!

Canadian men are quite loyal

5. How protective are they?

These guys act incredibly protective, but won’t pick a fight at a club because another man was checking you out.

Sexy Canadian guys can keep their heads cool.

They show their protective nature in other ways – making sure that you got home safely or by looking after you when you are sick.

6. Are they Resourceful

These guys are resourceful in every way!

Education is important to Canadian men, and they are all careerists. This means that most of them are resourceful when it comes to money.

Also, because women and men in Canada are equal, they don’t have a problem with doing any of the house chores.

How resourceful are Canadian men?

7. Maturity

These are probably the most mature men on the entire planet!

Canadian men know the value of family, money and respect other people’s beliefs and traditions.

They are funny but don’t make silly, nasty or racial jokes that most immature men think are hilarious.

Canadian men are highly matured

8. Self-confidence

Canadian males are usually quite confident.

Nothing is better when a man is aware of what he brings to the table and no one can belittle him!

Canadian men are just like that – smart and handsome, and won’t give anyone a chance to mock them! Even if somebody does, it won’t concern them!

Also, Canadian men in bed are quite self-assured and you should act the same or you might feel intimidated by them.

Canadian men are truly self confident

9. Are they friendly or reserved?

When you first get to know them, you might feel like they have their guards up. This is probably because they do.

Even though they are extremely polite, they don’t like to talk about themselves too much.

As time goes by, they are slowly opening up more and more, and become the friendliest people ever.

Are Canadian men friendly?

I am not one bit surprised that Canadian men score so high overall. This multicultural and multiracial country is a land full of wonders and great humans that are so friendly and welcoming. No wonder chicks flock north up the border to get a feel of what a Canadian can offer.

Are there any drawbacks to dating one of these fine gentlemen?

Where to Meet Canadian Men

Canada is a huge country, so where to meet Canadian guys?

It is always the best to pick out one of the largest cities – Quebec, Toronto, Edmonton, Ottawa or Winnipeg.

You can also choose the city in the official language. American women looking for Canadian men will probably visit a city where English is the first language.

If this isn’t the important criteria for you, you will probably have more options.

To meet Canadian guys, visit any local bar or pub. These men love to socialize and go out with their close friends regularly. Before approaching him, send over a drink – it is one of the tricks that always works.

Another good place to meet Canadian men is a hockey game! This probably sounds a bit unusual, but a majority of single Canadian men can be found in the stadiums and showing the interest in their favorite team is a big plus!

What to do when you don’t plan on visiting Canada? How to meet a Canadian guy?

In this situation, online dating is the best solution! These guys can be found on numerous dating websites but my recommendation is

This website already has millions of users and daily logins. It won’t be difficult to find a nice Canadian guy.

To start, you will have to create an account. You can’t use your Facebook account to sign up, but the process is still fast and simple.

After providing some of the basic information, you will be sent to a profile builder. You will fill the form with personal information and write something about yourself in About me section.

No verification is required and after signing up you can start exploring the website.

You will see that many profiles are quite detailed and without any extra charge, you can see the pictures that a person has uploaded.

Also, the match percentage is instantly calculated and it will appear at the top of the screen. Similar profiles will also pop-up which makes the search a lot easier.

To help you with your search, there are also amazing search engines – just choose the preferences to filter the showed profiles.

Initiating a conversation with can be tricky because you have to pay to enjoy some of the advanced options.

Liking profiles can be done for free and each time you like a profile, the member will get a notification. This is the easiest way to show interest. Also, all liked profiles are placed in a separate list and you can easily come back to them.

If you want to send a message to one of the members, you will have to upgrade your account. Fortunately for you, this is one of the cheaper websites.

There are also different subscriptions and premium members have the most features available – MatchPhone and Match me. With MatchPhone, you will be able to call other members and with Match Me, your profile will appear first as a suggested profile.

A chatroom is another amazing feature, but only premium members can try it out.

There is an app for both Android and Apple phones. It works just like the website and the same options are available in the app.

Pros and Cons of Dating a Canadian Men

International dating is always tricky because you never know what to expect.

What are Canadian men like and what are Canadian men like in relationships are just some of the frequently asked questions.

Canadian men have captivating personalities, look incredible and dating them can have numerous benefits. Of course, there are some downsides of dating Canadian men.

Here I will cover both the pros and cons so you know exactly what to expect and start your international dating journey prepared.


1. They are open-minded

Canada is one of the most developed countries in the world and with one of the highest standards. That is why typical Canadian men are so open-minded.

Women are equal to men, with the same opportunities and chances.

I’m not only talking about jobs and career vise. Typical gender roles aren’t followed. That means that men are comfortable with doing housework and women can go after their careers.

This also means that men aren’t expected to pay the bill every time you go out – on most dates you will probably split the check with your handsome Canadian boyfriend.

Moreover, if you don’t feel like settling down, you won’t be pressured to do it. Canadian males are okay with keeping things casual!

Like I previously mentioned, Canada is the country of many cultures, religions, and nations. It doesn’t matter where you come from, you will be accepted by everyone!

2. No language barrier

Unlike, Romanian or Greek guys, typical Canadian guys speak a few foreign languages.

In certain parts of Canada, French is the official language and in others, the majority of people speak English. A small percent of Canadians speak indigenous languages.

No matter which part of this beautiful country you visit, you won’t have difficulties communicating with locals.

Besides their official language, they will know the basics of other foreign languages as well. Because of this, many nations feel so welcome once they visit Canada.

3. Great sense of humor

I vividly remember first dates with hot Canadian guys. They were not only handsome and intelligent but quite witty as well.

Canadian men love to entertain and all of their jokes are intelligent and funny. Unlike Romanian, they will rarely joke at someone’s expense and there is no mocking.

Also, they don’t have a problem with laughing at themselves but don’t initiate this type of humor. If they start it first then it is okay.


1. They aren’t always loyal

Casual hook-ups are a part of Canadian dating culture which sometimes makes dating a Canadian man difficult.

If you aren’t officially dating, they will probably still go out with other girls.

I know this is shocking to some women. After a few dates, you probably think that you have him only for yourself.

Unfortunately, that is not always the case. These men do want to settle down, but it has to be done slowly and you will need to be patient.

Remember, if he can explore other options while the two of you are dating, nothing is stopping you to do the same.

2. Communication problem

I’m not talking about languages. I’m talking about miscommunication or lack of communication in a relationship.

Canadian guys are polite but don’t always talk things through.

That is why resolving any problem with them can be an issue.

Again a lot of patience is needed to get them to open up and start discussing certain topics. Once they are comfortable, they will honestly talk to you and the problem will be resolved.

So once again, approach them slowly and with a lot of understanding.

3. Unusual dating criteria

These guys aren’t looking for the most beautiful or smartest girl.

Of course, this isn’t entirely unimportant to them, but won’t be the deciding factor.

However, a deciding factor could be the hockey team you are supporting. Or the basketball team.

Now, I don’t know anything about either basketball or hockey and these teams are quite uninteresting to them. If you are the same, you will have a problem with one of the dates.

Also, another thing they are looking for is someone who shares their political beliefs. I understand how this can be important in certain aspects but I don’t think it should be the deciding factor.

How to Make a Canadian Men Fall in Love with You

I have a few tips for dating a Canadian man that guarantee the success of the first and other dates.

If you follow these steps, he will immediately fall for you!

Here is a list of the most important Canadian guy dating tips.

1. Learn everything about his favorite hockey team

As mentioned, hockey teams are of the utmost importance for these guys.

They don’t miss hockey games and when it is game time, they are all rocking jerseys of the favorite teams.

That is why you should know what hockey team is his favorite one and inform yourself about them.

Also, besides hockey, they are into several sports, so learn about those teams as well.

2. Show that you are independent

Gender roles aren’t strictly followed there, remember?

They are okay with you being a housewife, but they prefer independent women more.

You won’t be expected to be a breadwinner of the family either, but will be expected to bring your contribution.

Also, it is always a plus if you have moved out of your parent’s home and living on your own. This is another sign of independence they love to see and are attracted to.

3. Be adventurous

This country is covered in snow for the better part of the year. Canadians love all of the winter activities: skiing, snowboarding and ice skating.

If you are ever invited to a trip that includes any of these activities, always say yes!

By going with them, you are showing that you can be adventurous and follow their pace. Again, this trait is a big turn on for Canadian males.

Dating Canadian guys are exciting and you always have something to look forward to.

Show initiative

These guys are quite polite and you should be afraid to ask them everything. Even if the answer is no, they will turn you down in the most gentle way and appreciate that you took the first step.

This goes for everything – asking them out for the first time or planning the trip.

Canadian guys don’t have any desire to be the dominant person in the relationship and want to make sure that you are on the same levels – especially personality vise.

Canadian guys in bed are the same – they want it as much as you, maybe even more, but show it every time. From time to time, you have to make sure that certain things happen!

4. Don’t act like one of those high-maintenance girls

High-maintenance is probably the word that doesn’t exist in their dictionary and this personality trait is one of their biggest turn-offs.

Out of all, I think this is one of the most important Canadian men dating tips.

If you expect them to pay the bill every time you go out, bring you flowers and constantly shower you with presents, you will be disappointed.

Also, don’t beg for their attention. They love physical affection, but not if it is smothering them.

The Most Beautiful Canadian Men

This a country with mixed races and nations. You can find all types of guys there and picking out the hottest ones is difficult.

If you are lucky, your next Canadian date might look like one of these guys.

1. Ryan Reynolds

I think every girl in the world knows who Ryan Reynolds is.

This stunning actor is born in Vancouver and started his acting career in Canada.

The list of the TV shows and films he starred in is endless, but you probably remember him from the hit TV show Two guys and a girl or one of the famous movies: Deadpool and Deadpool 2.

Also, he is making millions of people laugh trough his twitter account.

2. Keanu Reeves

Another world-famous actor that is coming from Canada.

Currently, Keanu Reeves lives in New York City but he once lived in Toronto, one of the largest Canadian cities.

Even though he was expelled from one of the famous art school, he still pursued he’s acting career.

Acting isn’t the only thing that this sexy Canadian can do – Keanu is also a producer and musician.

Before starting his acting career, he was a goalkeeper for one hockey team and almost went to the Olympic Games with that team.

Even though he is famous worldwide, Keanu is still a down-to-earth guy.

2. Ryan Gosling

Another handsome Ryan on this list! Gosling comes from London, Ontario and he began his acting career on Disney Channel.

Since Disney, he came a long way and stared in many famous films: Crazy, Stupid Love, The Notebook and La La Land.

His talent was rewarded with a Golden Globe award!

Besides acting, he is also a musician and owner of one restaurant in Beverly Hills.
