Since I live in Canada, I thought it was important to focus away from the usual American or British shows and carve out a place on this website for Canadian content. Below is a complete list of Canadian detective/mystery/crime shows that have ever been produced. As can be seen, Canada hasn’t produced very many shows in the past, although that has changed in recent years.

Clicking on a title link in the list below will either take you to my post about that specific show (if I have created one). Alternatively, the list also includes links to places where you can watch/stream the show online. (Most of the visitors to this site are from the US, so all the links currently lead to US streaming sites, but I hope to update this page with information on where to stream in other countries as well.)
