Big Brother Canada 8 is the eighth season of the Canadian reality television series Big Brother Canada. It is based on the Dutch series of the same name, which gained notoriety in 1999 and 2000. Arisa Cox returned as the host for the series.[1] The season premiered with a two-night premiere[2] on March 4–5, 2020, on Global and was expected to end on May 21 with the live finale.[3][4][5] Preceding the two-night premiere, on March 1, there was a one hour long event, titled Big Brother Canada's Supersized Season 8 Preview with ET Canada, which featured interviews with the entire cast, an exclusive tour of the house with Arisa Cox, a retrospective on the past seven seasons, and the official reveal of the season's supersized theme.[1]

The season was planned to run for a total of 83 days. However, on March 24, 2020, Big Brother Canada announced an early end to production on the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada, with the season finale airing on April 1, 2020. All filming ceased on March 24.[6] The CA$100,000 prize that would have gone to the winner went to a COVID-19 relief charity.[7]
