CTV 2 is an English language television network in Canada. It is owned by Bell Media.

In 2007, CTVglobemedia bought A Channel in 2007 as part of taking over CHUM Limited. Media analysts thought that CTV might use its famous CTV name for that channel, but they changed the channel's name to A in 2008. Later on August 29, 2011, they rebranded it again as CTV Two.
