Winning team
Tim Hague, Sr. & Tim Hague, Jr.

Tim Hague, Jr., Tim Hague, Sr.

The first season of The Amazing Race Canada was a reality game show based on the American series The Amazing Race. It featured nine teams of two with pre-existing relationships who raced around Canada for CA$250,000, two Chevrolet Corvette Stingrays and an unlimited air travel for a year with Air Canada. The show was produced by Insight Productions, in association with Bell Media and was broadcast on CTV. The show was hosted by Canadian Olympian Jon Montgomery.


The series premiere aired on July 15, 2013 on CTV, with the season finale airing on September 16, 2013. Father and son Timothy "Tim" Hague, Sr. & Timothy "Tim" Hague, Jr. were the winners of this season of The Amazing Race Canada. They were the first parent-child team to win in any The Amazing Race franchise and at the time were the first team to win after overcoming two Speed Bumps.

Development and filming

The first season was filmed from May 3 to May 24, 2013.

The winning team earned $250,000 (CAD), a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Stingrays, and Air Canada executive passes for unlimited international air travel for a year.

The series' premiere sponsorship partners included Air Canada, BlackBerry, Chevrolet, and Interac.

During the airing of the episode for Leg 3, a message read by host Jon Montgomery recognized that the 2013 Alberta floods had occurred since the filming of the leg and prior to the series premiere. The message encouraged viewers to donate to flood relief and rebuilding efforts.

The Leg 5 Pit Stop was originally scheduled to be on the grounds of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building, however unexpected warm weather brought more people out to enjoy the weather. The unforeseen circumstance forced producers to move the Pit Stop to nearby Pine Island (a more secluded spot).

On May 8, 2013, Toronto City Council granted permission for Insight Productions to film a television episode for "3 participants rappelling over the West Tower roof onto the podium green roof of City Hall" on May 24, 2013. Ultimately, this permit was a ruse to prevent fans from recording the event and posting it online.


Casting began on December 20, 2012, with an online site for submission of applications and audition videos. The contestants included Body Break hosts Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod and actress Vanessa Morgan.
