About the Canadian accent

Canadian voice actors are a trendy choice for many voice over formats. The Canadian English dialect shares similarities with British and American English and can be indistinguishable from ‘North American’ to most non-residents.

Indeed, the accent is thought to have primarily originated from American speaking Loyalists fleeing defeat in the American Revolution to Canada.

The upper class in Canada also took a stronger interest in the RP-English dialect spoken by elites in England. Further immigration from Ireland and Scotland has helped to shape the distinct accent we hear today.

Acting as a Canadian voice-over agency, Voquent's voice actors will give you the best sounding "sorry" you've ever heard.

More interesting info about the Canadian accent

The Canadian English dialect has some cool sounding idioms and slang words including ‘Klick’ to refer to a Kilometre and ‘Keener’ to describe someone who is ‘too eager to please’. We’re particularly fond of ‘Kerfuffle’ – to cause a commotion or fuss.

“What’s all this kerfuffle about?”

Looking out for these slang words is a good way to differentiate the Canadian accent from the North American English dialect.

Canada is a vast country and the Canadian accent also varies by region. An Alberta resident will very sound different to a person native to Toronto. We offer both as our reach is not only national but global at Voquent the voice-over agency.

Canadian Raising?

All Canadians share ‘Canadian Raising’. This is a feature of speech where the diphthong in “now” sounds is raised before t, s or other consonants e.g. in the words ‘house’ or ‘about’. Noticeable in our Canadian Voice Actors.
