CBC Kids is dedicated to creating fun and inspiring programming to uplift and enrich Canadian children. In 2017, CBC Kids will help our youngest citizens understand and celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary through fun, interactive, original themed content. We’ll introduce new hosts and characters to help children understand and celebrate the democracy we enjoy as Canadians. Here are just a few highlights of upcoming programming:
Canadoodaday: The original, 13-part, animated digital series for kids ages 6 to 12 serves up historical highlights and fun facts about Canada with a twist. It will be released online leading up to Canada Day, with television to follow.
Snapshot Canada 150 Challenge: This contest offers kids the chance to snap a Canada-themed photo inspired by a line or few from our national anthem. The contest will be supported both online and during broadcasts.
Prime Minister for a Day: The new hosts and puppets of CBC Kids Studio K will shoot a series of segments about the Prime Minister to teach kids ages 4 to 8 about the fundamentals of our government. Kids will then be asked to send in their ideas of what they would do if they were Prime Minister. The winner gets the special honour of being Kid Prime Minister on Canada Day, along with some special surprises to go along with it.
Canada Day Celebrations 2017: The CBC Kids will bring hosts, puppets, plus some very special musical guests to a special one-hour show in Ottawa on Canada Day. More to come!
