To compile a list of Canadian brands that have done well in expressing their Canadian identity alongside clear product benefit or positioning.

Roots is a brand that is described as its Canadian-ness "permeates every product, good and advertisement that Roots releases". Their marketing also showcases their products positioned as robust, rugged and suitable to Canadian's unique weather and outdoor activities.
