On October 14, 2009, the CRTC approved Canwest Global's application for a reality-based specialty channel. Canwest filed for bankruptcy before the channel was able to launch. In 2010, Shaw Communications acquired the Canwest broadcasting assets and Global Reality Channel was launched on October 27 of that year. The channel ceased operations on November 1, 2012.
