HGTV Canada schedules third season of Home to Win

From a media release:

Canada’s top builders and designers are back under one roof in Season 3 of HGTV Canada’s #1 program,* Home To Win (8×60). Premiering Sunday, April 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada, with weekly airings on Global starting Saturday, May 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the all-star competition series follows the room-by-room transformation of a shabby countryside property into a modern family home. New this season, the opportunity for Canadians to compete to win the spectacular home is open exclusively to first-time homebuyers. HomeToWin.ca is now taking submissions and viewers can learn more about how to apply here.

The Canadian-original series returns with HGTV Canada’s robust roster of talent led by Entertainment Tonight Canada’s Sangita Patel. The eight-week broadcast kicks off with Bryan Baeumler and Scott McGillivray spearheading the hunt for the perfect property, while Sarah Richardson and Tommy Smythe decide on the overall design. Then Sarah Baeumler, Sarah Keenleyside, Brian McCourt, Sebastian Clovis, Sabrina Smelko, Mike Holmes Jr., and more HGTV Canada favourites take on the day-to-day challenges of turning the blueprint into a reality. Mike Holmes, Jonathan and Drew Scott as well as Dave and Kortney Wilson also pitch in with surprise visits throughout the season. In each episode, the cast face off in head-to-head challenges, then team up to complete extensive renovations showcased in stunning room reveals. The season concludes with three first-time homebuyers competing to win the completed home in the dramatic finale.

Nominated for a 2018 Canadian Screen Award for Best Cross-Platform Project Non-Fiction, HomeToWin.ca offers a closer look at the property with weekly photo galleries of the interior and exterior spaces as they are revealed in the show. A digital home tour features hotspots that allow users to shop for products featured in the home, while behind-the-scenes photography and written recaps by HGTV Canada experts take viewers behind the camera. Exclusive video content including guided room tours, DIY projects, and bloopers connects fans further with their favourite network stars. First-time homebuyers can submit their application at HomeToWin.ca until Monday, May 28 at 8 a.m. ET.

  1. I wish they would do a season where they consider current homeowners who have encountered a disability where their current home is no longer suitable. It could be something where the winning contestant(s) would sell their current home afterwards to offset the costs of the new home purchase & renovations. Accessible housing would be an interesting challenge for all these designers & builders ’cause the seasons I’ve seen haven’t been accessible homes.

  2. As long as this program does not leave Canada, I have no problem with your proposal, but, another but. How would you handle the on- scene contest portion of the show, especially when dealing with disabilities….
    making it equally challenging for individuals ? Good question. Could they build a room in a space if confined to a wheel chair ? for instance! Points to ponder.
    Better yet…why not a whole new show for these individuals….. equal playing field. Go through process of searching for the ideal home… process of selling their home once they have won the newly outfitted home.
    Thanks for your time
    Ps. How about a segment of life-after-the-win. See what the winners of HTW are up to a year later.
    Thanks for your time
