The Great Canadian Baking Show

About the Show

CBC’s homegrown take on hit format The Great British Bake Off, The Great Canadian Baking Show brings together 10 amateur bakers from across the country to compete in a series of themed culinary challenges that celebrate their diverse backgrounds, families and communities. Each of the eight, one-hour episodes features three rounds: The Signature Bake, the Technical Bake and the Show Stopper. After the judges taste and critique the bakes, they crown one Star Baker and ask one baker to leave the tent. The final three bakers compete for the Great Canadian Baking Show title. The series is an affirming, warm-spirited competition that celebrates personal achievement and the joy of baking.

THE GREAT CANADIAN BAKING SHOW is produced by Proper Television in association with CBC and Love Productions. The executive producers are Lesia Capone and Cathie James, and the series producer is Marike Emery. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Entertainment, Factual and Sports; Jennifer Dettman is Executive Director, Unscripted Content; and Susan Taylor is Executive in Charge of Production. The format is owned by Love Productions and distributed by Sky Vision. In addition to the original British series, the format has been produced in 23 territories including the United States, Australia, France and Ireland. THE GREAT CANADIAN BAKING SHOW is presented with Robin Hood®. The Robin Hood Baking Family consists of a portfolio of leading baking brands.
