List of CBC Radio AM Transmitters in Canada

This article is a list of full-power and low-power CBC Radio AM-only transmitters in Canada for the CBC Radio One and Première Chaîne networks which are still in operation on AM radio frequencies as of 2018. There are a total of about 100 or more AM transmitters which are still in operation by the CBC across Canada, As there may be some transmitters missing from the list below, this list may not necessary be complete. Since the 1980s, a vast number of CBC full and low-power AM transmitters have already moved to the FM band, with some new FM transmitters being added. It is possible that all or most of these AM transmitters listed below may eventually move to the FM band or completely cease broadcasting in the near future.
