The Channel

Canadian Prepper

Real Name(s)

Nate Polson

Nate was married to his wife, Jess, for some years. It appears that they may have gone through a divorce recently. He may have hidden this from his YouTube channel out of privacy for her.


Nate always believes in having multiple backup plans, staying prepared, having 6-12 months of food on standby and being a little…paranoid.

Nate has always been viligent and decided to build a business around his passion for helping people get through tough times!

Net Worth

Guys talking about survival and preparedness on Youtube are typically wealthier than we imagine. And so, at least for now, this is my best estimate…

As of 2024, Canadian Prepper (Nate Polson) from Youtube has a net worth of $2,750,000 Canadian dollars.

That certainly helps him stockpile a ton of food and supplies at his home.


It’s also surprising how much he makes with his channel. The following (like my net worth estimation above) is actually my best estimate, based on his channel and social media engagement metrics. 🙂

Canadian Prepper makes $33,000 per month on YouTube. Does that surprise you? The survival niche pays very well!

Nate does this through:

➜ Affiliate links to products he uses and recommends

➜ Ads that play on his channel (but I think he got demonetized for speaking truth to power)

➜ Numerous brand sponsorship deals

➜ Sales of his surival products on Canadian Preparedness

It’s clear that he’s treating his channel like a real business.


I haven’t really seen him collab with other YouTubers in the off-grid and survival space just yet.

Big Moments

During his journey, he has shared so much wisdom, knowledge, inspiration and most importantly, empowered us to take control of our own lives.

Nate knows full well that the government won’t be coming to save us. It’s up to us, as individuals, to stay ahead of the game!

Future Plans

Nate is patiently waiting for the anarchy to come, so he can prove his haters right!


Nate gets some backlash for his views and opinions. Because, not gonna lie, he is a little bit scaremongering for some people.

I personally don’t think the world is going to end tomorrow! But you know, there’s no downside to being prepared and buying a little extra each week.


What can we learn from his #cabinpreneur journey?

➜ You can be a prepper on the cheap

➜ Use the tools you have available

➜ Start building your bugout bag now

And of course, don’t rely on anyone else!

My Thoughts

While Nate can be a little overwhelming (especially the recent news coverage), it’s important to keep a level head when it comes to being a part-time prepper.

Start with the basics (food, medicine) and begin stacking in time. You don’t need to spend a fortune here!

Nate still remains the type of guy I’d want on my side when SHTF! 👍
