Fox Sports World Canada is a Canadian English language category 2 digital cable specialty channel owned by Canwest Media Inc.; a division of Canwest. FSWC's programming primarily features association football (soccer) with select programming on other world sports such as rugby.

Although its Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) licence calls for Fox Sports World Canada to carry soccer, cricket and rugby as their core sports, both cricket and rugby matches have all but disappeared from the station, with the exception of the half hour Total Rugby highlight show.
