The Amazing Race Canada 5 is a Canadian reality game show based on the American series The Amazing Race. It features ten teams of two, each with a pre-existing relationship. The grand prize is CA$500,000 and includes: a CA$250,000 cash payout, a "once-in-a-lifetime" trip for two around the world, and a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox "True North Edition" for each. Jon Montgomery returned as the host.
On October 12, 2016, CTV announced that the show was renewed for the fifth season.
This season will feature the addition of several real-time interactive features during the airing of each episode, including trivia, polls, and a national leaderboard. Additionally, viewers will be able to explore locations seen throughout the race through virtual 360 degree views, including this season's starting line: Signal Hill National Historic Site in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
To mark the occasion of 2017 being the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada, each leg will feature a specially-themed task that is identified as such.
Trip sponsor Hotels.com, outerwear sponsor Mountain Equipment Co-op, and Mentos discontinued their sponsorship, Chevrolet continued sponsoring the show along with multiple previous seasons' sponsor, Bank of Montreal (BMO). New sponsors for this season are trip sponsor Sinorama, Canadian Tire's Woods brand as outerwear sponsor, and the Campbell Soup Company.
For the first time in Race history, a total of three Express Passes were handed out to teams. In another race first, they were hidden on the Roadblock site of the second leg, and teams could pick up as many as they could find. However, they could only use one and had to give any others that they found to other teams.
