"Get ready for the race of a lifetime, Canada!

In an exclusive on-air message to Canadians during Sunday’s episode of THE AMAZING RACE, host Phil Keoghan announced on behalf of CTV that the network has ordered THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, a Canadian-produced, complementary version of the hit international series.

THE AMAZING RACE CANADA will provide a uniquely Canadian take on the original series, with competitors discovering the world within the borders of Canada. Though the series' specific destinations won't be revealed until it airs, Canada offers divergent topography and disparate locales that are bound to add to the excitement and complexity of the show and its challenges, from Vancouver Island's tropical rainforest, Alberta's parched Badlands, the peaks of the Rockies, and the barren tundra of the Great White North, to the Boreal forests of Ontario and Quebec, the sea-faring ports of the Maritimes, the fjords of Newfoundland, and the teeming metropolises and undiscovered towns in between.

Filming is expected to begin in the late spring, which will allow the series to showcase Canada when it is not covered in snow and ice." (source)

The Amazing Race Canada coming in 2013

Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports confirmed in an interview that Phil Keoghan will not be hosting (implying it was a scheduling issue) - no word yet on who will host the show when it airs next year.
