About CTV News Atlantic

CTV Atlantic is the number one television station in the Maritimes, known for its top-rated local news programs and primetime lineup. Along with around-the-clock news available online at, the station also produces close to 30 hours of news and information programming each week, including the CTV News, CTV News at 5 and CTV Morning Live.   

CTV Atlantic serves four provinces with two stations - CTV and CTV Two. CTV broadcasts to viewers in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. CTV Two covers all of Atlantic Canada, including Newfoundland and Labrador.

Having served the region for decades, CTV Atlantic has developed a loyal following of viewers who make each of the local CTV News programs the runaway leaders in their time period. CTV Atlantic produces several newscasts a day, relying on reporters from around the Maritimes to find and share stories important in their communities.  

Many of Canada's top-rated television programs are broadcasted on CTV Atlantic, including MasterChef Canada and The Amazing Race Canada. As a result, CTV Atlantic consistently dominates television ratings for all demographics.

CTV has become a go-to source of information for Maritimers - anytime - anywhere.  We share the latest in news and weather on, as well as on our social media properties - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

CTV Atlantic is also active in the community. The station contributes funding, resources and time to a large number of charitable organizations – particularly those supporting children. Of its most important commitments, CTV Atlantic is very proud to produce and broadcast two telethons. The longest running is the annual Christmas Daddies Telethon, which first aired in 1964 and raises funds each year to assist Maritime children in need. CTV also works closely with the IWK Health Centre Foundation to produce its annual IWK Telethon for Children. It is Atlantic Canada's largest fundraiser in support of the regional children's hospital. These and other events are an important part of CTV Atlantic's service to the communities in which it has proudly operated for more than three decades.
