Deal or No Deal Canada is the Canadian-English version of the show Deal or No Deal, which premiered on February 4, 2007. The show ran on the Global Television Network, and lasted five episodes.

The host of the U.S. version, Canadian-born Howie Mandel, hosts the Canadian version of the show. The producer and director of the US version, Scott St. John and R. Brian DiPirro, respectively, also went to Canada to produce this version.

The show was taped at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre in Toronto on January 23, 24 and 25, 2007 after receiving 112,767 applicants from prospective players.

The first episode aired on Sunday, February 4. This episode attracted 2.7 million viewers, making it the single highest rated Canadian program ever on Global [1]. The remaining episodes aired over the following four consecutive Thursdays, with the finale on March 1, 2007.

Despite the show's success in its brief five episode run, Global never picked up the show for a full-season run.

Canada's Case Game[edit]

Presented by ET Canada correspondent Rick Campanelli, Canada's Case Game is modelled after the American Lucky Case Game. During commercials, five cases are displayed by a selection of the models. Viewers are invited to choose a case by texting a number (at a cost of $1 per message) or entering at, with the winning case displayed at the end of the program and all those who selected that case being entered in the draw for the grand prize.

However, the prize in this Case Game is not cash; prizes that have been offered include a Pontiac G6 convertible (in connection with Pontiac's sponsorship of the show) and trips for 12 from Sunquest Vacations.

In the first episode, entry volume was so high that the contest had to be extended one hour.

Winners of Canada's Case Game are revealed the following evening on ET Canada.

Sponsors and cross-placement[edit]

In addition to Pontiac, Rogers is also a main sponsor of Deal or No Deal Canada. The red-coloured telephone on the show is product placement for Rogers.

In connection with this sponsorship arrangement, some of the case models appeared on Rogers Sportsnet on February 27, 2007 during their annual NHL Trade Deadline show[citation needed].
