Bell Media might be holding Younger for midseason, since they premiered season 3 last March. TV Land has unusual start dates for this series: 3/31/15, 2/3/16, 9/28/16 and 6/28/17.

EDIT: I also checked the advertising site (E! - Bell Media) but the show wasn't listed. I did find 2 other shows that return this fall for Season 2:
Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian
Total Bellas

Alexis Bledel Returns for "The Handmaid's Tale" Season Two
The 13-episode second season is scheduled to go back into production this fall and will premiere in 2018. [via press release from Hulu]

The Handmaid's Tale aired on Bravo in Canada. Given the glowing reviews they gave themselves in this press release, I'm sure they will bring it back for season 2.
THE HANDMAID'S TALE Surges To #1 Specialty Broadcast in Canada - Bell Media


TBS's "People of Earth" Returns July 24
The Comedy Network didn't air season 1 in Canada until Christmas last year, so it's hard to say when this will show up.
