CITS is a Canadian English language religious television station based in Ontario. It is licensed to the city of Hamilton, although its studios are located in Burlington. CITS uses the on-air brand of CTS (Crossroads Television System). CTS transmits on Channel 36 from the CHCH-TV tower at 481 First Road West in Stoney Creek.


CTS airs programming for family viewing, mostly based on Christian values, including dramas, comedies, mini-series, talk shows and more, although CTS also features shows on political commentary and other religions, including Judaism, Islam, and Sikhism. It is administered by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) Religious Broadcast Regulations and follows a policy of not airing shows containing "coarse language, gratuitous violence or explicit sexual scenes."


, but it was pushed back to allow cable companies to make changes to some of their channel designations.

Throughout the years, CITS-TV expanded its coverage across southern Ontario by adding transmitters in London and Ottawa and by securing cable carriage on various cable companies across Ontario and Canada and on satellite. CITS-TV began broadcasting a digital signal on UHF Channel 35 in Hamilton, ON as of January 2008.
