Dragons' Den is a Canadian television reality show based on the internationally franchised Dragons' Den format which began in Japan.[1][2] The show debuted on October 3, 2006, on CBC Television, and is hosted by Dianne Buckner. Aspiring Canadian entrepreneurs pitch business and investment ideas to a panel of venture capitalists (termed "Dragons") in the hope of securing business financing and partnerships. The show also has a Quebec-only spin-off called Dans l'oeil du Dragon (literally 'in the Dragon's eye').

As of September 29, 2022, 268 episodes of Dragons' Den have aired.
