Shaun Frey | @ownitdad


Shaun Frey is a proud girl-dad, and he never fails to show it with his hilarious reels and heartfelt captions! What this Canadian dad influencer loves about having a baby is making up his own games and dressing her up however he wants. His little girl, Zoe, may only be a few months old but she’s already been sorted into her Hogwarts house. Watching Shaun having the time of his life being a dad is an instant mood booster!

He may be poking fun at his six-year-old daughter every now and then, but at the end of the day, he lets her paint his nails in an ultra-shiny pink shade. If that isn’t awesome parenting, we don’t know what is.

Stewart Reynolds | @brittlestar

Stewart Reynolds calls himself “The Internet’s Favourite Dad,” and after scrolling through his witty posts, we’re 100% sure you’ll agree. His funny videos always look like high-budget TV commercials – the difference here is that we won’t be skipping the ads.  

Stewart is one of our top Canadian dad influencers because of his point of view on mental health, the pandemic, and social media. His personality is the perfect balance between thought-provoking and classy comedy. Trust us when we say you’ll be binge-watching Stewart Reynolds’ videos for the rest of the day!

Rick Campanelli | @rick_campanelli

We’re pretty sure you’ve seen Rick Campanelli on TV before. This media personality has interviewed a bunch of our favourite celebrities, and it’s all documented on his Instagram page!

Casey E. Palmer | @caseypalmer
