Defunct stations[edit]


There are two local stations, two rebroadcasters, and one community channel in Victoria. Victoria is the only Canadian provincial capital without a local CBC Television or Ici Radio-Canada Télé station. The region is considered to be a part of the Vancouver television market, receiving most stations that broadcast from across the Strait of Georgia, including CBUT-DT (CBC Television), CIVT-DT (CTV), and CHAN-DT (Global). As a consequence, Victoria's terrestrial television stations are either independent or associated with Canada's secondary television systems rather than with the main networks.
