CIVT was founded as an independent station called "Vancouver Television" owned by CTV's parent at that time, Baton.
Many CTV stations began to use the main CTV logo as their station branding between 2002 and 2005. CIVT was among the first to conduct such a manoeuvre, which occurred on July 1, 2002.
TV stations in British Columbia, including Vancouver
1 CHBC and CHKL carry separate evening newscasts (local and provincial respectively), but identical programming otherwise.
