The time has come for Canadian Queens to don their fiercest flannel realness and serve up Canadian charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent as Crave announced today that casting for the original series CRAVE’S DRAG RACE CANADA (werking-title) is now underway. Beginning July 9, Canada’s best drag artists can find more details here on how to enter for their chance to compete for a cash prize of $100,000, and the title of Canada’s First Drag Superstar.

In the very first Canadian adaptation of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE, CRAVE’S DRAG RACE CANADA combines elements of the classic fan-favourite, with a healthy serving of Canadian maple shade and likely, some Canadian bacon. The 10-episode, one-hour series goes into production in Ontario this fall, with some of Canada’s most talented drag artists competing. The DRAG RACE CANADA host and judges will be announced at a later date.

Since the initial announcement of CRAVE’S DRAG RACE CANADA, hundreds of posts on Twitter and Instagram have made #DragRaceCanada a Top 10 trending topic, and has kick-started a buzz around who should be crowned Canada’s First Drag Superstar. All hopeful competitors who are 19 years of age and older, and are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada can apply now.
