Production

On October 12, 2016, CTV announced that the show was renewed for the fifth season.

This season will feature the addition of several real-time interactive features during the airing of each episode, including trivia, polls, and a national leaderboard. Additionally, viewers will be able to explore locations seen throughout the race through virtual 360 degree views, including this season's starting line: Signal Hill National Historic Site in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.

To mark the occasion of 2017 being the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada, many legs will feature a specially-themed task that is identified as such.

According to executive producer John Brunton, an overseas visit to Kenya was originally planned, but was scrapped due to safety concerns.

Trip sponsor Hotels.com, outerwear sponsor Mountain Equipment Co-op, and Mentos discontinued their sponsorship, Chevrolet continued sponsoring the show along with multiple previous seasons' sponsor, Bank of Montreal. New sponsors for this season are trip sponsor Sinorama, Canadian Tire's Woods brand as outerwear sponsor, and the Campbell Soup Company.

For the first time in Race history, a total of three Express Passes were handed out to teams. In another race first, they were hidden on the Roadblock site of the second leg, and teams could pick up as many as they could find. However, they could only use one and had to give any others that they found to other teams.

Similar to previous seasons, a special season-end reunion/recap again titled After The Race, again hosted by the cast of The Social, aired immediately after the season finale with all 20 contestants present to review the season as a whole.
