One of my favourite Canadian painters is Christian McLeod. I love his bright and bold colour palette — it always seems to work in so many spaces.
He has an open studio event Saturday, December 17th from noon to 5 p.m. at 89 Ossington Ave., Toronto. If you're in the area, do take a look.

The Peonies II, oil on canvas, 2011.
