Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) is the first national Aboriginal broadcaster in the world, with programming by, for and about Aboriginal peoples.

The launch of APTN on September 1, 1999, represented a significant milestone for Aboriginal Peoples across Canada. For the first time in broadcast history, First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples have the opportunity to share their stories on a national television network dedicated to Aboriginal programming.

Through documentaries, news magazines, dramas, entertainment specials, childrens’ series, cooking shows and education programs, APTN offers all Canadians a window into the remarkably diverse worlds of Indigenous Peoples in Canada and throughout the world.
