The Canadian Hot 100 is a music singles popularity chart issued weekly by Billboard magazine which ranks songs in Canadamarker. The chart premiered in the Billboard issue dated June 16, 2007 and was made available for the first time via their online services on June 7, 2007. With this launch, it marked the first time that Billboard created a Hot 100 chart for a country outside the United States. The first number-one song on this chart was "Umbrella" by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z.

As of the issue dated November 21 2009, the Canadian Hot 100 has had 28 number-one songs. The current number-one song is "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga.

The Canadian Hot 100 is similar to Billboard's U.S.-based Hot 100 in that it combines sales via digital downloads, as measured by Nielsen SoundScan, and Canadian radio audience levels as measured by Nielsen BDS. Canada's airplay chart is the result of monitoring more than 100 stations representing rock, country, adult contemporary and Top 40 genres. As they have traditionally done with the rollout of other new charts, Billboard compiled unpublished "test" charts prior to its premiere (these ranks were displayed in the first chart's "last week" and "two weeks ago" columns). The online version of the chart also features Canadian flag icons next to tracks that qualify as Canadian content. To date, no Canadian artist has ever topped the chart.

Billboard charts manager Geoff Mayfield announced the premiere of the chart, explaining "the new Billboard Canadian Hot 100 will serve as the definitive measure of Canada's most popular songs, continuing our magazine's longstanding tradition of using the most comprehensive resources available to provide the world's most authoritative music charts."
