For the upcoming Canada Day on July 1st, it’s only right to celebrate some of the greatest inventions developed from the beautiful country. Whether you are a native or non-native Canadian, you’ll appreciate the region more than ever after reading this article. Enjoy reading!

20-Peanut butter

In 1884, the first patent for the spread of this highly incredible substance was Marcellus Gilmore Edson from Montreal, Canada. Although many credits George Washington Carver from America for creating peanut butter, Gilmore developed the process of milling roasted peanuts. When the agricultural product is milled, it gains a similar texture and consistency similar to butter. Also, he pitched the fine-textured peanut butter to people who can’t consume solid food. Till today, most children appreciate his fine piece of work.

19-IMAX

IMAX viewing of Avengers: Endgame is another beautiful invention from Canada. The famous Graeme Ferguson and Roman Kroitor (both from Canada) were the first to develop a high-resolution image tech for huge screens during the Expo ’67 in Montreal. The partners collaborated with Robert Kerr and William Shaw to establish Multi-Screen Corporations. The establishment eventually became “Image Maximum,” simply known as IMAX.

In 1971, the Cinesphere, which is the first theatre by IMAX, was constructed in Toronto’s Ontario. The location was originally used for science films and documentaries until an American company bought IMAX in 1994. Afterward, it was revamped into a Hollywood powerhouse, with Toronto being the headquarter. A quick one: You’ll find the tallest dive roller coaster in Ontario.
