You’ve probably ended up because you were looking for advice on a product you wanted to buy. We’ve covered everything from paddle boards to mattresses.

Then the pandemic hit in 2020, and people started spending more time outside so we tried to focus on outdoor recreation equipment. 2021 was all about personal fitness and spending time with your loved ones.

After the pandemic was over in 2022 and 2023, inflation started to get a little crazy and set records for how quickly prices were rising in Canada, and so saving money was the new priority for shoppers in Canada.

In 2024, interest rates are high, and money is still tight for more Canadians. We’ve started a new program of monthly giveaways of some of the best products we can find in Canada.

Here’s a bit about the people that make this site a reality.

Mike Szostech, Founder

Hi, my name is Mike Szostech and I live in the BC, Canada. I used to buy things online, ship them to the USA, and then cross the border to pick them up, but that’s just a hassle. And frankly, with the uncertainty of border lines, the uncertainty of having to pay duty or not (every border agent seems to have a different ‘limit’ they’ll allow you to cross with), and a poor USD to CDN exchange rate, it just isn’t worth it anymore.

That’s when I started looking for a Product Review Canada website. I came across a ton of great review sites (which you’ll notice I often mention and link to throughout the site) – well funded projects with lots of employees, warehouses to review the products, and real boots-on-the-ground research into these products. What I didn’t find, was anything for us Canadians.

About Canada Reviewed – What We Do

Are you tired of spending hours researching a product purchase by reading online reviews, looking for the best product price, and then when you finally decide on a product to buy, you realize it’s only available from a USA online retailer?

I’ve had that frustration a few times, and that’s why I decided to start this Canadian product review site.

Back in 2018, I ran into this problem often. At the time, I was living close to the US/Canadian border and so it was easy to have my product shipped to the American side, and then pop over in the evening and pick up my stuff.

In fact, whole businesses in the USA were built on just receiving and holding these products and purchases for us Canadians.

But then in 2019, COVID hit, and crossing the border was stopped for a little while, and was quite difficult for a long while. That’s when the idea turned into something I had to do – I had to create a place where there were high quality unbiased product reviews of products that were available to buy in Canada.

This site is for you – I want it to be your source for Canada product reviews. I will only talk about products that can be purchased from Canadian retail companies – online, or brick and mortar.

Some may call this an affiliate site, some might say it’s a digital lifestyle magazine – sure. Call it what you will! My hope is that it’s a helpful resource for Canadians; people looking to buy products in Canada, find product reviews of things available in Canada, and unique experiences and events that are distinctly Canadian.

I welcome you, and invite you to leave some comments if it’s been helpful to you!
