Canada 360 is a Canadian 24-hour news radio station, which airs on Sirius XM. Operated by Accessible Media (AMI), the channel provides news, traffic, weather, sports and border crossing information. The channel was formerly programmed by Radio Development Group, owned by serial entrepreneur Evan Kosiner.

The station began airing in 2005, concurrently with the launch of XM Canada.[1] Its programming currently consists of news and sports headlines sourced from Canadian Press, and weather forecasts provided by The Weather Network.

The audio is encoded at 4 kbit/s mono and sounds similar to that of an AM broadcasting station. The 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.
