Canadian Sesame Street is a long-running Canadian children's educational program that aired on CBC Television.

This series is essentially the original American version of the show, but with Canadian segments, including those focusing on teaching French, added to replace segments on the original show (primarily Spanish-speaking segments) considered irrelevant to Canadian audiences.

The series ended in its original form in October 1996 and was revamped into a half-hour version called Sesame Park, with increased Canadian content and only a few segments from the original American show included.
