Access Media Group (legally Learning and Skills Television of Alberta Ltd., which also served as the corporate brand until 2005) was a privately-held Canadian broadcasting and multimedia group based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada specializing in learning-based media, originally majority-owned (and later wholly-owned) by CHUM Limited. It owned four television channels, a multimedia distribution company, and a school for continuing education and personal growth. AMG's headquarters are situated at Enterprise Square in Edmonton, Alberta.

At the time of the company's founding in 1994, it was 60% owned by CHUM Limited. On February 15, 2005, CHUM purchased the remainder of the company. The company had been owned by CTVglobemedia since June 22, 2007 as a result of its takeover of CHUM; and AMG was wound up into CTV Limited (the renamed CHUM Limited) in 2008.[1] CTVglobemedia continues to own the majority of AMG's assets, broadcasting and otherwise.

In the near future, BookTelevision and CourtTV Canada will be moved to the CTVglobemedia headquarters in Toronto, Ontario while Access TV will be relocated to CFRN-TV's studios.
