Top 100 Most Subscribed Canadians On Youtube

I've been promising to provide an updated Top 100 Most Subscribe Canadians list for some time and finally, here it is. As you may know, I also have made a top 100 list covering the UK, and I will be posting ones for Australia, Ireland and several others because each of these countries deserve to have their best (not just most subscribed) shown some support.

And nothing wrong with getting a backlink on the Internet even if it's from my lameass blog right? That's one of the reason I do this - to give those hardworking folks a heads up that, yes, there really ARE people watching!

So, who are the most subscribed Canadian Youtubers as of January 15, 2011? Here is the list of those Canadian YouTube channels with the highest number of subscribers and compared to where they were on the last update (July 2010 - man, I have to update these more often!).

It is probably no surprise that heading the list is Justin Bieber's kidraul channel given his huge fan base. Actually, the first 4 are all on the worldwide Top 100 Most Subscribed List.

First, here's the Top 10 Most Subscribed In Canada:
Now: 904388
July 2010: 684515

1. kidraul - Surprised? Bieber has been the number one most subscribed Canadian youtuber for a long time now and it is doubtful anyone is going to knock him off the top of the heap anytime soon. I for one am getting a little bit tired of the over-saturation of all things Bieber-related but the kid from Stratford Ontario just keeps chugging along.

2. pyrobooby - Peter Chao just may be the only one who might rival Bieber for the most subbed in Canada, but he has a long way to go before he knocks off Bieber. He would have to get double the subs he currently has and the meantime Bieber continues getting a lot of new subs every week. Choa is known as The Chinese Guy on YouTube with his exaggerated thick accent conbined with massive attitude. Straight outta Vancouver, Chao has a bit of a potty mouth, but he can be very funny. His 2nd channel, The Chao Nationis also doing good and is the 15th most subbed in Canada with a further 182,430 subs.

3. jonlajoie - Jon Lajoie slipped a bit in the top 10, but still has been killing it with his videos. Check out his most recent about Retaphin! Not Just For Those Who Need Retaphin. That Bradshaw's Blog post also includes WTF Collective 2. Awesome.

4. FLuffeeTalks - FLuffee's videos mostly have him sitting in front of his camera (wearing his black toque with "FLuffee" on it) and discussing oddball news items. Better than it sounds like actually. He's number 81 worldwide on YouTube and about to get his 500,000th subscriber. Fluff was just about to get his 400K sub last July, so that's a sweet improvement. Check out his 2nd channel ThisisFLuffee, with a further 100,342 subscribers. That one is up to number 41 in Canada although it's been 4 months since he uploaded to that channel.

5. trailers - This is the VEVO channel for Bieber and it has leapt up the charts and now sits 5th. Personally I don't really like all the various VEVO channels that are encroaching the top of all the different charts. A little too corporate for me. But they are getting views and subscribers, so they have to be included. I would suggest in most cases that you sub to the artist's personal Youtube channels (if they have one that isn't just for announcements or releases).

6. charliejames1975 - This channel features the incredible Zuzana and you've probably found her channel because of the hot thumbnails of Zuzana working out. After actually watching her you realize that she is a serious trainer and in absolutely fantastic shape. Really, you could shred lettuce on her abs. I dare you to stop watching for the hotness factor and try to keep up with her as she does her exercises. If you want a body like that, it takes a lot of hard work.

7. trailers - as it's name suggests, um, trailers. This is the Official Viso Trailers channel. Good if you are looking for trailers.

8. KlassicMaster - This is the Youtube channel of Mike Kalombo, an extremely talented musician/producer. Somehow Mike's channel slipped under my radar, but no more. You need to go check out his tunes. I didn't even have KlassicMaster on my last list of the top 100 Canadians and BOMB here he is dropping in at number 8! I'll be putting up a feature about him channel later this month.

9. ahmirTV - Talented. I am always willing to give channels like this a big thumbs up. If you have not heard them, give this a listen: Just The Way You Are (AHMIR cover). The R&B quartet were signed by Robbins Entertainment in September 2010. Their Youtube account says they are "The Number One R&B Group on Youtube." Yes, yes they are.

10. jeyyounit11 - Jeydon Wale's channel. I don't usually slam too many channels but this is just incredibly bad. Wale stopped posting videos a while back but is posting them again. Personally I think there is nothing wrong with being goofy, but this is really lame.
Wale is 19 years old (almost 20) and he's doing stuff that you do when you are 13-14 years old and that seems to be where his audience is - primarily tween girls as the majority of comments seem to dwell on how "dreamy" he is and asking him to marry them. Hopefully he will mature a smidge and evolve beyond this type of humour. When a guy gets to his late teens and early 20s and attracts primarily very young female fans by acting like a little kid it starts getting a little creepy. He has been getting more subs but thankfully this channel is slipping out of the Top 10 as it was 6th most subbed back in July 2010.

That's the Top 10 for Canada, but there are a LOT of other equally good or better channels the further down the list. With the 3 new channels in the Top 10, 3 channels had to drop out and those are lisalavie1 Lisa is an incredible singer still a solid number 12 overall. I wouldn't be surprised to see her slip right back into the top 10 shortly.

Game channels are all the thing, but somehow TehNoobWorld only increased by about 14,000 subs. Probably because the channel doesn't do game play or reviews but is trying to do voiceover and storylines which is done better on other channels. Only really interesting for those immersed in the game they cover. It gets old really fast unless you are fully immersed in the gamer world, but it seems that these dudes need to get out and gets into the sunlight and meet some chicks. Finally, there's shimmycocopuffsss aka Daniel Shim who dropped to 14th overall in Canada. At first and maybe even 2nd glance you'd think "gay dude", but Shim says he's "just some random straight Asian guy who cares about fashion & looks as equally as a girl or more. Hey folks, it's called being metrosexual." Shim's 2nd channel ShimmyHeartsYou slipped a bit to number 62 but gained 22,000 subs and sits at around 71K subs.

One of my pet peeves is that there are some channels supposedly based in Canada (Avril Lavigne springs to mind) that block their content to those who live in their native country. I think that if that is the case they will be blocked from the Top 100 list when it is next updated because it is not truly a Canadian Youtube channel.

MrChaoNation is Pyrobooby's 2nd channel and he's had a big jump in subscribers since last July. Notice that there are a couple more new channels listed in this part pbpproductions and Avril Lavigne) that were not even on the list 6 months ago which shows there is plenty of room for upward movement.

Why do I feel like I was Rick Rolled watching this video? I guess you could say I was "Jesse Rolled". I have no problem with the dancers, but I think that anyone who likes this song or video needs to watch Jon Lajoie's Pop Star Video. A far better choice would be the video below by greenday3840.

I should have featured Janick Thibault in that feature on this blog called "Under The Radar". A lot of talent here and he's just 16 years old? Original music written and performed by the artist/singer is ALWAYS better than slick, packaged, bland music that they are always trying to push on teen girls.

This is particularly funny if you are a Black Ops player as you get all the action with a parody of 70s Toto music. "Let's bring the pain down in Aricaaaa"

Nickelback's Youtube channel suffers just as big a FAIL just like Avril Lavigne's because their record company doesn't allow access to their videos if you live in Canada. It would be like U2 being denied in Ireland (not that I'm comparing Nickelback to U2), or Katy Perry being denied to UK fans. I think that the next time I update this Top 100 Canadian youtubers list that if the channel content cannot actually be accessed by Canadians the channel will be left off the list.

With NHLVideo, you get exactly what you think ~ all hockey highlights, all the time. As a Canadian male I think you're automatically subbed when you get a Youtube account. Simple Plan's channel has music and stuff, but nothing new for about 7 months. If you are interested in learning Jiu Jitsu, you need to check out Submissions101.

Another abandoned channel? No content on Drummerboy00 since April 2010. Anytime a video starts with the warning that "concentrated sodium hydroxide is very corrosive so wear gloves when handling it", you have my attention. Science experiments are what you'll find on NurdRage.

Nothing new on number 81 Telner's channel in 9 months and counting. It is not really my thing, but pr3ttykitty1337 seems to be getting a lot of subs with videos about the family cat. With LinusTechTips (number 91), it is just like the name says - tech tips from Linus. He knows his stuff. And check out Bobby Crispy's channel if you have any interest in learning to play the guitar. Crispy knows his stuff and posts new content all the time.

It's a shame about PurchaseBrothers abandoning their channel. Another account that has not been updated for about a year. It has only 5 Videos, but awesome content. Unforgiven11? No new videos for 2 years, but he gets new subs? His last video was about stalkers. Makes you wonder what evil fate befell him.

As you can see, to make the Top 100 in Canada, you need to have at least around 40,000 subscribers. Just 6 months ago, all it took was around 30K so the bar keeps getting raised. That shouldn't discourage you or anyone else from trying to get in the Top 100 and becoming a Youtube Partner. Just upload unique interesting content. People are watching and the Youtube website is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds and there is a place for you on it.

Also, I should mention that there are lots of people who don't make that cut, but who are making great content and need to be seen. Even though this is a Top 100 List, I still review youtubers with just a few subscribers too.

Most Subscribers This Past Week

There are the channels based in Canada that have received the most new subscribers. Of course the ones that seem to have received the most are the ones concerning Justin Bieber. You may notice that Bieber's VEVO channel received 2x the number that his personal channel "kidraul" received. Usually I suggest that people sub to an artist's personal channel because they get all the benefits from getting more subscribers to their own work rather than one of channels owned by the record companies, but since Bieber's channel is already the most subscribed in Canada, it doesn't matter really in this case.

But, here are the ten channels with the most new subscribers this past week.

JustinBieberVEVO 23,886
kidrauhl 10,744
jonlajoie 6,763
pbpproductions 6,145
NextGenTactics 5,836
pyrobooby 4,232
FLuffeeTalks 4,159
charliejames1975 4,133
JReyez 3,820
DrakeVEVO 3,506


  1. You forgot EpicMealTime!!! they have about 135k subs and they're definetly from Canada

  2. Whoa you're right! EpicMealTime has 136,912 subs and they are 26th most subscribed in Canada.

    I'll give them props in another article. Don't know how I missed those guys because food is like my thing lol. Loved their Thanksgiving video about cooking "a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a pig."

  3. You should review JeimusuJones

  4. Just took a quick look at JeimusuJones' channel and I will definitely do a review. Thanks for the heads up.
