From a media release:

While Brent and Sean, Nick and Matt, Gino and Jesse, and millions of viewers across the country set their sights on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA Season 3 finish line, race fans can also now begin gearing up for their own once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of the most epic race this country has ever seen. CTV announced today it has greenlit another exciting adventure for Canada’s most-watched summer series. Casting for the series’ fourth season in 2016 will open on Wednesday, Sept. 23, immediately following THE AMAZING RACE CANADA Season 3 finale airing at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO. For casting details and updates, fans can now visitCTV.ca/TheAmazingRaceCanada, with additional casting submission details to be announced during AFTER THE RACE, the season finale after-show airing at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO.

On the Season 3 finale of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA (Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO), the final three teams race to Vancouver and Whistler, B.C. where they’re pushed to the limits in the most terrifying challenge ever. The highs are high and the lows are low. It’s winner-take-all in the most extreme finale yet. The three remaining teams still competing for the biggest grand prize in Canadian television history are: Brent and Sean brothers from Musquodoboit Harbour, N.S.; Gino and Jesse, brothers from Hamilton; and Nick and Matt, wrestling teammates from Newmarket, Ont. and Stouffville, Ont. The winning team will take home more than one million dollars worth of prizes, including a $250,000 cash payout, “gas for life” from Petro-Canada, the opportunity to fly for a year anywhere Air Canada flies worldwide in Business Class, and two Chevrolet Colorado Trucks – the 2015 Motor Trend Truck of the Year.

Immediately following the Season 3 finale of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA is the fan-favourite, one-hour after-show special, AFTER THE RACE (Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO). Shot live in front of a studio audience from CTV’s headquarters in Toronto and hosted by TSN’s James Duthie (@tsnjamesduthie), AFTER THE RACE reunites all 12 teams to re-live their most memorable moments, while also giving viewers a look at the exclusive first chat with the finalists and the newly crowned winners, just minutes after Canada learns who wins the race.
