Dickinson appeared for eight seasons on the show before departing in 2015 to launch District Ventures Capital, a fund aimed at investing in innovative food and health-based businesses.
For the first time in the show’s history, Season 12 will feature six Dragons, as Dickinson joins Jim Treliving, Michele Romanow, Joe Mimran, Manjit Minhas and Michael Wekerle.
Dragons’ Den also airs on a new night this fall, Thursdays, starting September 28, at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC.
