Fact: The Office isn’t leaving Netflix Canada.
It’s been less than a day into the new year and 2021 is already starting to dish out some big-time positives.
Canadians woke up on the first day of 2021 to find that The Office hadn’t been removed from Netflix Canada as previously announced. As it turns out, because NBC’s streaming service (Peacock) isn’t available in Canada, the popular US sitcom will remain on Netflix Canada for the foreseeable future.

In an email with Netflix Canada’s customer service, no additional information was provided as to how much longer The Office will remain on the streaming service. A Netflix Canada representative told Daily Hive that customers will be given “months notice” before the series gets taken off the platform.
So yes, now might be a good time to do a Dwight Shrute celebration karate kick.
In June 2019, Netflix USA announced that “NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform — but members can binge watch the show to their hearts’ content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021.”
Netflix Canada had never made an official announcement that it would follow suit but did retweet Netflix USA’s initial tweet.
So, snuggle up next to the beloved Dunder Mifflin gang, because they won’t be leaving the Canadian market after all. Well done, 2021.
