* Joytv, a multi-faith religious station in Vancouver (okay, actually Fraser Valley/Abbotsford, but close enough) and formerly Winnipeg, which have a very similar format to the Omni stations, but with religious and family-oriented syndicated fare. In fact, they ''were'' Omni stations for a period: the Fraser Valley station was originally owned by the non-profit Trinity Television, known as [=NowTV=], and supported by both donations and advertising. Facing financial issues, Trinity sold it (along with a yet-to-have-launched Winnipeg station) to Rogers, who re-purposed the Omni brand from its Toronto stations on them. When Rogers bought Citytv in 2007, it was forced to sell these two stations because they now owned more than one English-language station in Winnipeg and Vancouver (you can usually only own more than one station in a market [[/index]] [[LoopholeAbuse if they broadcast in different languages]], [[index]] like the Toronto Omni stations). They were eventually sold to the non-profit [=S-VOX=] (who also owned Vision TV), who re-branded them under a similar format as Joytv in September 2008 (they had branded using their call letters as an interim measure). S-VOX later sold its broadcasting outlets to Moses Znaimer's Zoomer Media.

** In September 2013, the Winnipeg station dropped all non-religious programming and re-branded as Hope TV.
