Brother Canada is the Canadian version of the international phenomenon Big Brother. It is based on the American version of the franchise.
How It Came To Canada
Big Brother U.S. was always available to the Canadian audience since it premiered in 2000. Later in 2003, Quebec, the French province of Canada, decided to produce their own version of Big Brother based on the French version called Loft Story. After airing Loft Story through 2009, Quebec decided to change to Big Brother 2010.
Then in May of 2012, Shaw Media announced that Big Brother would come to Canada in 2013, and would be broadcast on Slice. Later Shaw announced that Live Feeds would be free on the Big Brother Canada website. It then premiered in February 2013.
After two successful seasons, Shaw Media decided that the show earned its spot on Global.
A few weeks after the fifth season finished airing, during June 2017, the show was announced to be on hiatus. Then, on July 20, 2017; Global announced that (due to overwhelming support from the fans) Big Brother Canada would be returning in 2018 for Season 6.
