Following its July 2 premiere on CTV, The Amazing Race Canada returned for Season 7 as the nation’s most-watched entertainment summer series, with two million viewers across the country tuning in to watch the premiere episode.
Destination BC has been working with The Amazing Race Canada production team since the show began in 2013—which has filmed in BC every year since. The partnership presents an immense opportunity to showcase BC’s stunning natural landscapes, outdoor adventures, and world-renowned hospitality to audiences from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
Over the years, the show visited Prince Rupert, Haida Gwaii, Whistler, Vancouver, Victoria, Osoyoos, Penticton, Castlegar, Nelson and Tofino. In 2019, participants and viewers were taken from the rugged, rolling hills of Kamloops to the vibrant mountain town of Revelstoke, and finally on to the buzzing coastal city of Nanaimo.
A special thanks to the businesses and volunteers in this year’s filming locations, who embraced the opportunity to host the show’s crew and promote the province. To celebrate the airing of these BC episodes, Destination BC partnered with local tourism organizations to hold viewing parties in Kamloops, Revelstoke and Nanaimo on each air date. This was a great opportunity to meet the locals who helped bring each episode to life, share in the excitement, and toast to our collective success in showcasing BC.
