GVTV was an online video series produced by the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; and the regional Metro Vancouver government, based in Vancouver.

GVTV aired as a half-hour newsmagazine show on Shaw TV Vancouver, the community channel for Greater Vancouver.

The show looked at the people, places, history and urban issues shaping Vancouver and the region. The show provided in-depth information on issues and debates often not covered by the mainstream media. GVTV aimed to provide viewers with background and context for the decisions and initiatives being undertaken by municipal government and to encourage residents to become involved in local governance.

From its inception in 1999 to its completion in 2009 GVTV produced more than 500 stories and public service announcements.
