5 amazing kids' movies and shows coming to Netflix Canada this May

There may not be many kids' titles coming to Netflix Canada in May 2021, but we're betting your kids will want to watch these more than once.

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 are only a handful of titles to look forward to in May, but don’t let that discourage you—you’ve got two new kids’ movies and new seasons of Trash Truck and Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous coming your way! 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.
