Welcome to the new Global Durham


Global Durham’s commitment to providing Durham Region with accurate and timely information is unwavering. We know our audience wants information at their fingertips and the new Channel12.ca provides the information you have come to expect from Global Durham in the digital environment.

Story continues below

When our parent company, Corus Entertainment, purchased Shaw Media in spring 2016, a plan was put in place to integrate our broadcast stations with Global News. This plan has brought together our newsrooms across the country, utilizing our television and radio personalities for expanded, in-depth coverage of the issues that matter most to Canadians.

We are happy to announce that the next step of this integration is now underway with the online experience for Channel 12 being incorporated into the GlobalNews.ca domain.

Why we are moving

GlobalNews.ca has become one of the top news destinations in Canada and by combining forces with our fellow journalists across the country, Global Durham will now be able to serve the Durham Region community better by dedicating our resources and focusing on the hyper-local issues that matter to you, our readers.

What’s changing?

Besides the domain switching from Channel12.ca to GlobalNews.ca when you visit our site and a slightly different appearance to match the existing GlobalNews.ca style, not much is changing. You’ll still be able to watch your favourite television segments from Global Durham online, find local events, traffic, weather and contests.

For GlobalNews.ca readers in the region, the good news is you will now have the benefit of getting more news and content focused on Durham Region, so it’s a win-win for everyone.

So what’s new?

For us, the biggest benefit of moving to the GlobalNews.ca domain is that we will now be part of a responsive website, meaning you’ll be able to read our Global Durham content on your smartphones or tablets in real time.

You’ve told us how important breaking news is to you. We will be posting breaking news stories even faster, giving you the important news you need. The Global Durham commitment to serve as your breaking news station is stronger than ever, now bolstered by combined Global News and Global Durham resources.

We now have access to a lot more national and international stories that we can deliver to our readers in the region. The move also helps expand our support team across the country, so we can bring you great new features and more in-depth coverage.
