Amazon’s Alexa joins Canada Day celebrations and her very own first year anniversary in Canada with Anthem singing, party ideas, Canadian jokes and tongue twisters and more. If you have an Alexa speaker you are all set. If not, check out Amazon’s Alexa smart speakers: Alexa Echo $99.99, Alexa Dot $39.99 and the newest Alexa Spot with screen and cameras, available at www.amazon.ca. Alexa tries Canadian accents, but she can’t pronounce Regina quite right, eh! Still, this new catalogue of voice command utterances are available now to make Canada Day special.
Here are some commands you can try
- “Alexa, sing O Canada”
- “Alexa, happy Canada Day”
- “Alexa, what should I do for Canada Day?”
- “Alexa, what are you doing for Canada Day?”
- “Alexa, tell me a Canadian tongue twister”
- “Alexa, tell me a Canadian joke”
- “Alexa, tell me a Canadian limerick”
- “Alexa, what’s your favourite Canadian food?”
- “Alexa, who are your favourite Canadians?”

With skills to try on Alexa like The Bartender, Recipe Helper, OurGroceries, Cocktails on the Beach and more, the possibilities of hosting the best Canada Day event are endless! You can download Alexa food and drink skills here.
You can also stream your favourite Canadian artists across your Echo devices all day long with Prime Music (www.amazon.ca/primemusic) which is also available for free to Canadian Prime two-day free delivery subscribers. Just ask, “Alexa, play the Made in Canada: The Essentials” on Prime Music to hear a mix of classics by locals including Shawn Mendes, Drake, Alanis Morrissette, and The Tragically Hip.
Happy Canada Day!
