Top Fifty Shows Set and/or Filmed in Canada

For tvrealm (and in honour of Canada Day), fifty shows I like that were set and/or filmed in Canada.

This list includes both predominantly U.S. shows that happened to be filmed in Canada and purely Canadian shows that never crossed the border. Some, I will confess, made the list entirely out of nostalgia.

In alphabetical order, because I don't want to try and rank them.
