Happy Canada Day! Celebrate With Our Favo(u)rite Canadian TV Actors

Many wonderful things come from north of the border -- and we're not talking solely about great beer, cheesy poutine and heart-stopping hockey. We're talking about Canadian TV actors, and wow, are there many.

From William Shatner and his legendary turn as Captain James T. Kirk on "Star Trek" to the smoking hot Nina Dobrev of "The Vampire Diaries," Canucks are everywhere on TV, and they have been for some time now. So in hono(u)r of Canada's 145th birthday on July 1, we present to you our very favo(u)rite Canadians on the small screen.

(We couldn't possibly name every single Canadian TV actor out there, so we just chose a few of our current on-screen favourites. If there is a very glaring omission, please let us know and we might include!)
