Vue Weekly is an alternative weekly newspaper published in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and with new issues coming out every Thursday.

Vue was founded in 1995 by former employees and owners of SEE Magazine, upset over losing control of SEE to creditors. Vue was partly owned by The Georgia Straight for a brief time, then was 100% independently owned by Ronald Garth for several years. Vue is now owned by Postvue Publishing LP (Robert W. Doull, President).

Vue filed a suit against the Canadian government for giving tax breaks, which were designed for Canadian-owned newspapers, to its rival See because See's parent company was ultimately owned by US-based Hollinger.

Vue is a member of the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.
