Carly Rae JepsenWe've already started planning our Fourth of July celebrations next week. Burgers? Check. Fireworks? Check. Red, white and blue cookies? Check, check, check. However, some of our friends from Canada get to celebrate their country's birthday a few days earlier than ours, on July 1. In honor of Canada's 145th birthday this weekend, we give you Hollywood Crush's Seven Pop-Culture Things We Love A-boot Canada.

Carly Rae Jepsen
We just met her, and this is crazy, but Canadian crooner Carly Rae Jepsen brought us the song of the summer, "Call Me Maybe." Her new duet with Owl City, "Good Time," dropped this week and it's just as catchy and dance-inducing as her breakout hit. Before she came into our lives we missed her so bad; thank you, Canada, for Carly Rae Jepsen!

Sh-- Girls Say
You know him as The Girl who, er, says that sh--. Canadian Graydon Sheppard and his boyfriend, Kyle Humphrey, launched one of the years' best memes with their hilarious Twitter account and YouTube videos. Canadian comedians are nothing new—funnymen Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Will Arnett and Michael Cera all hail from the Great White North—but these boys invaded the social media-sphere and made us all laugh at ourselves.

Taylor Kitsch
This is supposed to be the year that transitions Taylor Kitsch from Tim Riggins to blockbuster movie star. Well, "John Carter" fell short of expectations and "Battleship" has been sinking at the box office. Perhaps the third time will be a charm for Taylor, whose new movie, "Savages," hits theaters next weekend. And even if it's not? He's so easy on the eyes that we'll keep going to see this Canadian cutie's movies regardless.

"The L.A. Complex"
This sexy, drama-filled Canadian soap was picked up by The CW this spring. If you haven't watched the first six episodes yet, you are seriously missing out on all the stripping, sex tapes, casting room couches, secret gay romances, unrequited love and backstabbing beyotches. Need we say more?

Justin Bieber
You already know the amazing story: small-town boy from Stratford, Ontario, makes it big after being discovered on YouTube. His newest album, Believe, has received rave reviews, cementing our belief that the Biebs is a true pop star rather than simply a passing tween heartthrob. Despite all his fame, fortune and that famous girlfriend, Justin still makes time to go home and visit his family and friends in Canada.

Shay Mitchell
August's Seventeen cover girl is Pretty Little Liar Shay Mitchell. The ABC Family star and former model is enviable not just for her talent, looks and fashion sense, but also her support of anti-bullying causes "Be a Star" and "Delete Digital Drama." Basically, like a true Canadian, she's just so gosh darn nice, eh?

Ryan Gosling
Hey girl. Ryan Gosling will always be Hollywood Crush's No. 1 Canadian. End of story.

Who's your favourite Canadian? (See what we did there?) Let us know in the comments and on Twitter!
