Godfrey Gao is quickly becoming one of our favourite Canadian exports!

Not only has the Taiwanese-born Canadian model and actor made us proud by being the first Asian model to appear in a Louis Vuitton ad, he's also just signed a deal to become the Canadian Tourism Commission's (CTC) new ambassador for its marketing and awareness campaign within the Chinese market.

And judging by his Instagram, it looks like Godfrey is already well on his way to exploring Canada, and is doing a hell of a good job of documenting it. Seriously, could they find a more perfect ambassador?

Not convinced? Here's why his Godliness makes the perfect face for Canada tourism:

As any good Canadian should!
