Giant Tiger is your Canada Day Headquarters with Giveaway Canada #CanadaProud


Canada Day is the official long weekend kick off to summer. Oh and Canada’s Birthday of course! With the kids out of school and many taking their summer holidays it is a fabulous time for a barbecue.

All Canadians seem to love to celebrate Canada Day and they do so in the funnest ways possible. We sport our red and white outfits, hang our festive decor , raise our flags and host BBQs. As I mentioned school is out and the days are longer, so this is the weekend to have fun and let loose.

My family loves to BBQ and does so often. My teen boys really love to eat (as most teens seem to do), everything! So burgers are usually the meal of choice for us. Invite over some friends and you have a party!


In preparation for our feast I was able to get everything I needed at Giant Tiger to celebrate and have a pre-weekend BBQ.  As you can see burgers (handmade and pressed) were on the menu. My kids are pretty basic when it comes to their taste, bacon, cheese, and ketchup is what they love. Myself I enjoy pickles and mustard as well on mine.


Add in some red decor and sweet treats and you are all set. With Canada Day around the corner Giant Tiger has all you could need and more to make this a fun celebration! A one stop shop for all your Canada Day deals!

GT-canada day

Add in a little red, some good food and fun company and you have all you really need. My kids love getting in on the festivities! I plan on spending many days out on the patio and the plastic tableware and festive decor will be used all summer long.


I love how there is something for everyone when shopping there and it is all so affordable. Having two ever growing teen boys I am always looking to save a buck where and when I can.

Canada Day  is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act

Hands down, Giant Tiger is the one-stop-shop for all our Canada Day needs. Whether you’re popping into a local GT boutique or browsing online at, they’ve got your Canada Day prep covered with everything from fashion and décor to food essentials and fireworks!

From June 29 –July12 Canadians can show their support for our troops by making a donation at participating Giant Tiger Stores across Canada.  For every donation made, customers will receive a thank you card that allows them (and their family) to write a note to the men and women that keep our country safe. The best part? These notes will be placed in care packages that will be delivered to our Canadian troops abroad during the holidays!
