Canada 360 is a Canadian 24-hour news radio station, which airs on XM Satellite Radio, Channel 155. The channel provides news, traffic, weather, sports and border crossing information, part of which is sourced from Radio Development and also from Canadian Press. Canada 360 is the only source on Sirius XM for Canadian news, traffic and border information, often compared as the Canadian equivalent of Sirius XM's other news channels like CNN, BBC News and Fox News.

The audio is encoded at 4 kbit/s mono and sounds similar to that of an AM broadcasting station. This channel's audio is vocal audio only, much like Sirius XM's other traffic and weather channels.

On 2008-11-12, Canada 360 was moved from Channel 244 to Channel 96.
On 2011-05-04, Canada 360 was moved from Channel 96 to Channel 155.
