The CBC Regional Broadcast Centre, also known as the Vancouver Broadcast Centre,[1] is an office and studio complex located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The centre houses the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's radio and television facilities for the city. It is the second largest CBC production facility in English Canada, and the third-largest overall, after Toronto's Canadian Broadcasting Centre and Montreal's Maison Radio-Canada. The building was designed by Paul Merrick for Merrick Architecture and built in 1975.[2]

The building underwent significant renovations starting in 2006, which were completed in 2009.[2] The expanded facility included community space to house the offices of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Vancouver International Children's Festival and the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, as well as a 4,000-square-foot (370 m2) performance studio similar to Toronto's Glenn Gould Studio.

In addition to Vancouver's local CBC broadcast stations (CBU, CBU-FM, CBUF-FM, CBUX-FM, CBUT-DT, CBUFT-DT), the national satellite radio network CBC Radio 3 operates from the Vancouver building. It also serves as one of the originating studios for the nightly national newscast The National.
