Canada 360 is a Canadian 24-hour news radio station, which airs on Sirius XM. Operated by Accessible Media (AMI), the channel provides the latest news, sports, weather 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 and became the world's first 24/7 headline news radio station, concurrently with the launch of XM Canada.[1] Its programming currently in a 15-minute block with news and sports headlines sourced from Canadian Press, plus 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. Currently, it's on Channel 172.
