10 kids’ movies and shows that are new on Netflix Canada in May 2020

Every month, Netflix Canada adds family-friendly shows and movies for your kids to stream. Here's what's coming up in May 2020.

Netflix Canada has announced which new TV shows and movies it will be adding to its lineup next month, and of course that means, more options for kids! There’s a handful of titles to look forward to in May, including great picks for preschoolers like Go! Go! Cory Carson and Chico Bon Bon (based on the popular picture book series Monkey with a Tool Belt)! Check out the full lineup with specific release dates below.

But first, an important note: The age recommendations offered below are approximate. Every kid is different, and you’re the best judge of what’s appropriate and what your kid can handle.
