daytime is a Canadian television talk show that has become one of the defining shows across the Rogers TV network of local community television stations.

daytime covers a wide spectrum of topics in a 60 minute format, generally described as a local lifestyle show that highlights members of the community. Some of the topics and themes based from community access of the show range from food, cooking, home, decorating, shopping, fashion, health, fitness, entertainment and more.
