APTN History

The seeds of a national Indigenous television network were sown over 30 years ago. Today, APTN shares programming by, for and about Indigenous Peoples to all Canadians as well as viewers around the world.

The launch of APTN on September 1, 1999, represented a significant milestone for Indigenous Peoples across Canada. The network has since become an important entertainment, news and educational programming choice for over 9 million households in Canada.
