Once they had found three and returned them to the front desk, they would receive their next clue.

In the final Roadblock of the Race, the team member did not participate the first Roadblock would have to use a mechanical ascender to climb to the top of the museum's glass atrium, grabbing their next clue along the way. Once at the top, they had to pull themselves along the roof before they could return to their partner.

Additional tasks
  • Upon arriving in Ottawa, teams had to search the cluebox inside Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge contains their next clue.
  • At the Fleet Street Pumping Station, teams had to ride inflatable kayaks down the Ottawa River through an Olympic kayaking training course, until they reach the Rideau Canal.
  • At Parliament Hill, teams had to find the office of the Honourable Andrew Scheer, and would choose one of three envelopes with a date written on it. They would then have to search among the thousands of books stored in his office, known as Hansard, chronicling the debates that took place at Parliament Hill. They had to search for their specified date and figure out which historic Canadian event took place on that date (Mickey & Pete: March 25, 1986 – Introduction of the loonie coin; Natalie & Meaghan: March 30, 1949 – Adoption of "O Canada" in English and French; Ryan & Rob: December 15, 1964 – Introduction of the new Canadian flag), If they found it, they could bring their answer to the Library of Parliament to receive their next clue.
  • At the National Gallery of Canada, teams would have to put together an art installation known as 'Paintings from the Race'. They would have to choose from a large selection of paintings, 36 of which depicted places seen on the race (some paintings are of unrelated scenes from past Race versions, including the original American franchise). They would have to arrange these paintings into the correct places on the wall, three for each leg of the race. Once all of the paintings were correct, teams would receive their final clue.
