From students to teachers and everyone in between, there’s something for everyone with this year’s assortment of featured products at Staples – in store and online – to help Canadians go back-to-school like a Pro!

Here’s what we saw in store at Staples, trending and likely coveted by your kids this year:

O Canada!
What better way to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday than to sport your pride with Canadian-themed products. The Hilroy Weekly/Monthly Student moose-themed planner is perfect to keep the festive spirit going all year long. Use a beaver pen from Merangue or a Canada-themed light-up pen to mark down important activities. Store all your Canadiana items in our celebratory Canada 150 animal, lumber jack and 150th anniversary pencil pouches that are both functional and stylish.

Vibrant Colours
Get your school year off to a bright start! Staples prides itself on bringing a cheery attitude to the back-to-
school season. Take minimalism and vibrant colours to the desk with poppin tape dispensers, files, cups and trays made in bright fuchsia, white, blue and more.
