BBC Kids is a Canadian digital cable specialty network which was launched in 2001. Although run in part by BBC Worldwide, BBC Kids (or BBCK) is considered a Canadian network, and is not considered directly connected to the parent BBC.

The network airs a mixture of Canadian and British programming aimed at younger audiences, and in recent years the network has been airing reruns of the original Doctor Who series. In 2007, it won the Canadian broadcast rights to The Sarah Jane Adventures and aired Series 1.

The network did not immediately air Series 2 of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and as a result the season saw DVD release in Canada in November 2009 without it first having been aired there.

In mid-2009 it was announced that Shaw Cable, one of Canada's major cable providers, would be dropping BBC Kids from its digital cable line-up. In mid-January 2010 the network belatedly began airing Series 2 of The Sarah Jane Adventures. It has not been announced whether Series 3 will follow.
