But apparently Disney+ on its own will. From TVLine.com:

"Disney+ will launch in Canada and the Netherlands, in tandem with the U.S., on Tuesday, Nov. 12 (at the subscription price of $8.99CAD per month/$89.99 per year and €6.99 per month/€69.99 per year)."

Any takers at that price?

From a Canadian Press article:

"The initial slate of titles that'll launch on Disney Plus in Canada hasn't been announced, but the company has teased some of the projects that are in the works. Among programming exclusively launching on the platform is an update to the "Home Alone" and "Night at the Museum" franchises, as well as a remake of "Lady and the Tramp."...

Brahm Eiley, president of consultancy firm Convergence Research, says many questions linger about how Disney Plus will look in Canada. In particular, he wonders if viewers will feel the service's programming slate pales in comparison to the U.S. It's a criticism that hindered Netflix for years after it launched in Canada.

Representatives for Disney declined to answer questions about whether its Canadian Disney Plus service will mirror its American platform.

For viewers, figuring out which Disney shows are available on the Disney Plus platform could prove complicated."

As always, Canada is relegated to also ran status when it comes to seeing American services online.

there's actually a pretty good website that tells you if a movie is streaming on a certain platform service, or if it's available to rent/buy.  I use it quite frequently, and it's for a Canadian audience.
