Canada's Worst Handyman is a Canadian television series broadcast on Discovery Channel. The show is produced by Proper Television, and shares its production with Canada's Worst Driver, including executive producer Guy O'Sullivan and host Andrew Younghusband. The series is based on a one-off 2004 episode of the Britain's Worst series, titled Britain's Worst DIYer. Like sister series Canada's Worst Driver, there have been similar adaptations in other English-speaking countries, in the US in 2011, with America's 10 Worst DIYers, in Britain with a Britain's Worst 2005 spin-off series, Britain's Worst DIYer. Six seasons of the show have been completed. On January 10, 2013, the series' Facebook page posted a statement that the show is “on hiatus with an unknown date for relaunch.” In June 2014, Discovery Channel Canada started canvassing for couples at www.badhandyman.ca. The new version of the show airs in Spring 2015, under the title Blood, Sweat & Tools, featuring couples instead of individual handymen.

The contestants are chosen by nominations submitted to Proper Television. Canada's Worst Driver and Canada's Worst Handyman are filmed alternately, with one season of Driver followed by one season of Handyman. Currently, Driver is filmed during the summer and Handyman in winter. Nominations for the next season of one are accepted shortly before the airing of a season of the other on Discovery Channel. Candidates may be nominated by multiple nominators, though only one nominator accompanies the contestant to the Handyman Rehabilitation Centre.
