Ici ARTV (stylized as ICI ARTV) is a Canadian French language specialty channel owned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The channel broadcasts the arts and culture including music, dance, theatre, visual arts, films and scripted television series.

Ici ARTV was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) as la Télé des Arts as a joint venture between the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Télé-Québec, Bell Globemedia, Arte (through Arte France, a joint venture of France Télévisions, Radio France and INA, both historically and formerly known as the ORTF and the French state) and L'Équipe Spectra. The channel was launched on September 1, 2001 as ARTV.

In Fall 2007, L’Équipe Spectra sold its seven percent interest in the service to the CBC. CTVglobemedia also announced that it intended to sell its interest in the service to the CBC. The CRTC approved the transaction on June 20, 2008. In late 2010, Télé-Québec sold its interest to the CBC, bringing its total interest to 85%.

On December 10, 2013, the network was re-branded as "Ici ARTV" as part of a plan to unify CBC's French-language outlets around a single brand.[
