Junior Television Club was a Canadian children's television news magazine series. It was broadcast on CBC Television from Vancouver, British Columbia between May 1, 1957 and June 26, 1957. The show featured five pre-teen hosts, including ten-year-old Kim Campbell (then known as Avril Campbell), who later became Canada's first female Prime Minister. Campbell moderated discussions on subjects of responsibility, such as pocket money and the use of lipstick, and was also the host for guest performers.

The show aired Wednesdays at 5 PM for two months.
