Snapchat brings on-demand holiday Geofilters to Canada

Snap, the makers of Snapchat and Spectacles, have brought on-demand geo-filters to Canadians.

Originally launched in May for Australia and in February in the Unites States, on-demand Geofilters allows all the Canadian ‘Snapchatters’ to easily design, customize, map, and buy your own Geofilter directly from Snapchat.

The service will be available to all across our fine land on December 16th with pricing starting at $5 (USD). The cost for the filter will increase depending on the size and time period.
