Collage of Black Canadian Influencers/ Black Canadian Bloggers, Youtubers and Content Creators

30 Black Canadian Content Creators to Follow

by Kaya Marriott

This post is something I’ve wanted to put together for a long time. It’s a celebration of Black Canadian content creators. I searched high and low for Black Canadian YouTubers, Bloggers, and Instagram Influencers to come up with this list, and it is by no means exhaustive.

Because this list got a little on the long side, I already have a Part 2 in the works, which will include some Black Booktubers and bloggers. So make sure you’re following me on social, and are subscribed to the blog so you don’t miss it!

1/18/22 UPDATE: We now have a MASSIVE directory of Black Canadian Content Creators, made up of 300+ influencers. Go check it out.

The goal of this content creator list:

In creating a list of Black Canadian creators, I hope to do three things:

  1. Help Black Canadians find influencers that speak to them.
  2. Help fellow content creators find (and/or broaden) their community, so that we can support one another.
  3. Help potential PR/marketing teams find and connect with Black Canadian creators to work with.

Related: To keep supporting Canadians, check out this list of Canadian Natural Hair Care Brands.

Now, on to the list…

Black Canadian Content Creators you need to go follow right now

I’ve divided the content creators up into categories to make it a bit easier to sort through, and have linked their main platforms beneath their photos. If you don’t have the time to check out each person’s links, I definitely recommend bookmarking this for later! They are all worth checking out, and you never know who’s content will inspire you until you see it.

(This entire list is alphabetical, not ranked in any way. It’s a mix of larger influencers, micro influencers, and those just starting out.)

Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle:

The truth is that most bloggers and YouTubers do a little bit of everything. Therefore, I’m lumping beauty, fashion, and lifestyle together because the below Black Canadian content creators focus on one or all of these three.

And if you’re interested in the beauty, fashion lifestyle sphere, make sure to check out this list of Black Canadian Etsy Shops.
