Canadian Broadcasting Database Updates (Recent)

TV Fool's current database shows a whole bunch of signals that, according to Industry Canada's broadcasting database, have become "allotments", which I presume means they have gone off-the-air. In addition, there also seem to be a few new signals that are up and coming, including some that are going digital.

Hope this helps. Also, if anyone could clarify exactly what they mean by "allotment", I'd really appreciate it. Thanks all.

An allotment is a channel reserved for future use. Any new application must protect the allotment even though it is not on the air.

Yeah, there are a lot of those. Makes it tricky picking them up since you basically need a large roof-mounted antenna as rabbit ears may not be strong enough.

That, of course, assumes that there are local transmitters in your area, and given how many have gone or are going off-the-air...
