CANADIAN CONTENT FILTER: What are some recent (released in the last six months) cool kickass CANADIAN party rockers? (Music, that is)

I'm putting together a few demos for possible radio shows which, thanks to various patriotic CANADIAN bureaucrats, must feature at least 40 percent CANADIAN artists, bands.
What I would love are recommendations for recent releases that define as Canadian and would not sound out of place in some kickass Saturday night style mixes. Genre is not the issue, as long as it pushes a few boundaries. So dubstep rawk punk funk techno mashup, whatever you want to call it -- it's all good as long as it MOVES and isn't getting played to death already.
A couple of recent examples I quite like:
Crystal Castles - Not In Love ft. Robert Smith (The Cure)
Baseball Bat - Hervé featuring Marina Gasolina
(I realize, this has no particular Canadian connection but it's kind of energy I'm looking for).
