I think its narrowed down to the semifinalists, then the cast is finalized next month into March.

You are right - the interview stage is over and they need to pick the teams and alternates. If you’ve not been contacted I’m very sorry.

Where do ya'll think the starting line will be?
With the first 6 seasons, it was always in a different province/territory (ON/AB/QC/NWT/NFL/BC) but that went out of the window last year.

I wouldn't be surprise if they do Toronto area again...
But I'm hoping for a Maritime start! New-Brunswick perhaps or a PEI start with a self-drive leg 1 in New-Brunswick. That would be different from what we had in the past.

I’m hoping that they’ll visit ALL provinces and territories - going to cities and regions they’ve not been before. Too much TO, Calgary and Vancouver.

I would love the return of at least one international leg.  All Canada is great, but this many seasons in, it can get repetitive.

I just wish they would have an announced live start.

Any new news on Amazing Race Canada Season 8? I'm worried how the coronavirus will affect this season! Both in terms of locations, destinations, and the comfort of participants and the teams working behind the scene. I have friends travelling on cruises, etc and there is a fear out there.

I would be surprised if it impacted it much.  If they need to avoid Asia, that is easy enough to do, and as filming is not traditionally until May-ish, the situation should be far more stabilized internationally by that point.

Felt better after reading your reply then watched the news and the latest report is ...has reached 25 countries, 31,000 people. I think it will be address somehow, perhaps not in ways we can see at this point. Anyway, looking forward to a great race!
