On September 1, the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) turns 10.

The anniversary will be celebrated with a 90-minute special, called Milestones, Memories and Moving Forward, which will be broadcast on that evening at 9pm. Starring Lorne Cardinal, the show will highlight the history of APTN and how the network continues to evolve.

Canada is fortunate to have a television network that focuses exclusively on its Aboriginal peoples. APTN is the first national Aboriginal TV network in the world with programming by, for and about Aboriginal Peoples.

Its mandate is to broadcast content that includes programming by and from First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples in Canada, as well as Indigenous programming from around the world.

Over the past decade, APTN has helped develop Aboriginal talent in this country and has contributed significantly to the growth of the Aboriginal production companies across Canada.

APTN is available in about 10 million Canadian households. Its programming is 56% in English, 16% in French and 28% in Aboriginal languages.
