October 1, 1966
First transmission of colour television signals by Canadian stations begins. At the time there are only 50,000 colour televisions in Canada, compared to almost 5 million black and white sets. Most of the colour sets are concentrated in the Toronto / Hamilton / Golden Horseshoe area of Southern Ontario where they can receive a large number of colour programs from the US.
