Radio Two is not as widely available across Canada as Radio One. While Radio One is available in most communities across Canada regardless of size, Radio Two for the most part is available only in larger cities.

Regional programming primarily consists of a weekly arts magazine which airs on Sunday afternoons at noon, and a daily calendar of local arts and culture event listings.
