10. West Coast Girl
Jillian Harris is one of Canada’s most beloved celebrities. Throughout her fame and fortune she’s stuck true to her roots and has never ventured far from Canada’s west coast. She was born and raised in Peace River, Alberta, and lived there for nearly 20 years until she moved to Calgary and then eventually Vancouver in order to pursue her dream as an interior designer. She recently moved to Kelowna, B.C., with her fiance, Justin Pasutto in order to be closer to her family. The two bought an older home, renovated it and travel back and forth between Kelowna and Vancouver for work.
