Canvas is a Belgian television channel, which forms part of the Flemish public broadcasting organisation Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep (VRT). Specialising in both original and adaptations from western Europe and North America, the channel offers: in-depth news and current affairs, non-mainstream entertainment, documentaries, arthouse films and other cultural programming.

The channel, launched in December 1997, is part of VRT's second network (VRT 2), which also carries occasional sports programming under the Sporza branding. The current network controller of VRT 2 is Bart De Poot. Until 2012, Canvas used to shared with the children's channel Ketnet between 7am and 8pm; Ketnet has thus moved to its own channel and Canvas became a standalone channel.

Prior to the launch of OP12, Canvas broadcast from 8pm until around midnight to 1am each evening. Now Canvas broadcasts from 6:00am - 1:30am or 2:40am on weekdays and from 9:00am - 2:00am or late on weekends.
