Assuming this is 9 and there's 2 legs left, I'd guess a northern final 4 leg and a Winnipeg finale (that would fill in every province except the 3 Maritimes since a Route Marker did send them just over Quebec's border). Or vice-versa.

Of course there could be one lass cross-country jump, as they've done plenty on this route, for a Maritime leg.

Yeah, a leg in the north could be possible... Or maybe a full leg in Quebec, they usually always have a full leg so we will see...

As for the finale, I say very good chance we have a Winnipeg finale, with an outside chance of Edmonton, or maybe even Fredericton (link with Canada 150)

Fredericton is the only unvisited capital. It is one of the smaller cities in the province.

As for Saskatchewan, my best guess as to where they could have completely avoided detection is the Big Muddy  Badlands/Castle Butte rock formation 2 hours south of Moose Jaw (most of the bottom edge of SK is a desert landscape. It'd look great on TV).

Or possibly the Qu'appelle Valley NE of Regina.

Moose Jaw has 50,000 people. Chances are they'd have been seen.

Wish I could have helped more on this one, having almost moved here in 2005. I searched everything I know.

Saw this on Reddit:

So I saw the amazing race filming in Panama on two separate days. When I first saw them I asked what they were filming for and I was told "a Canadian TV show called "endurance"" but later I saw them standing on TAR mat and opening the iconic yellow cards. I have pictures and videos but not sure if I should/ am allowed to post them since they're of the contestants and stuff.

Now there's this comment: They were also spotted filming near where I work. The clue box was set up. It being midtown Toronto no one gave a shit. It was also a U-turn box so now we know for sure in Toronto leg of TAR Canada next season there's a u-turn.


If true, we missed a leg somewhere and we have 1 leg left.

I'm currently working in Downtown Toronto. If there are any sightings please message me. I might be able to confirm them!!

Additionally, 4 hours ago on FB, Lisa Ettinger (who appears to be an eTalk reporter) made a teaser post on her Page with pictures from an "undisclosed location" in Toronto. Saying there's news coming.

Placing him there, one of them is a selfie with Jon

Vancouver x3 and now Toronto x3? :(

She did pre-race promos with Jon, and he is wearing the same clothing. Likely from pre-race.

Ah, okay.

Probably like last season where they were holed up for interviews in hotel rooms before the race.

 Any guesses on what this @AmazingRaceCDA Roadblock could be? Find out on S5 of #AmazingRaceCanada on @CTV_Television! pic.twitter.com/xIPTUM2lXA

WildPlay Adventure Park, they have a few BC locations, but presumably the one in Maple Bridge near Vancouver. So Leg 1

Quick Google image search of the sign's words got this. You get a great idea of the task in this blog post

Would have expected the semi-final leg (or final, if we missed something) today. Nothing's come up in sightings.

Could be possible the race is finished, even. They disappeared into southern Saskatchewan a few days ago and rhat was it. A gap between domestic legs wouldn't be this long.

Last year's finale was run the day after our Victoria Day holiday (which is tomorrow), and they started earlier this year.

If they managed a completely undetected final leg, bravo TAR Canada

They could've gone to Churchill, Manitoba.

It's possible, it's very isolated, fly-in only. That's a location I've suggested for a couple years, it's one of the places I've been watching.

Yeah, if they don't show up by Tuesday, odds are it's over.

I wonder/hope they finished in one of the northern provinces. :hoot: Maybe in one of the arctic national parks.

They have been missing for quite a while (I'm ready to put up missing people posters for leads :funny:)

If the Reddit sighting of Toronto is true, we missed a U-turn leg somewhere. I think most would agree Toronto is hard to escape without sightings. In this scenario, finale would have been Friday? and race is over.

If Toronto is false, today? would be the final leg. (Leg 9 - SK, Leg 10 Friday and ?, Leg 11 Today)

Note: They have roughly one day break after filming of a leg unless its KOR.

Last year they held off filming finale until after Victoria Day weekend was finished, and there were big gaps between the latter legs.

Yeah I remember Season 3. Every time we assumed they were done...oh there they are again.

Suddenly they appear to be in Quebec City. Could this be the finale? If so, we've just seen one of the final 3.

So confused by this route...

I think this may be the final 4 leg, would we have 2 season finale in Quebec in a row? (Even if we did have Toronto-Ottawa in S1-S2)

Also, in the picture I posted in live, I don't know if we see a racer, there is a guy with a blue backpack  and a red maple lead, is that a bag we know?

Male on Team 6 has blue bag.

Team 9 has a blue bag also.

If this isn't final leg, pretty much count on it being Tuesday after the holiday, like last year.

This waterfall, Montmorency, is just outside QC, along the ridge the city is built on.
