Lisa LaFlamme is the National Affairs Correspondent for CTV National News. Regarded as one of Canada’s top journalists, LaFlamme reports on a wide spectrum of national and international news stories that impact Canadians. Also a regular fill-in anchor for Canada’s #1 national newscast, throughout her career she has covered some of the most significant moments in history.

A hard news journalist at heart, LaFlamme has reported from locations all over the world. Since 9/11, she has covered every angle of its aftermath – from New York to Afghanistan to Iraq. LaFlamme was on the ground in New York City covering the immediate after effects of the 9/11 attacks on World Trade Centre. Since then she has been in and out of Iraq several times covering the American invasion, elections, the Saddam Hussein trial and the region’s ongoing civil unrest. In 2006, LaFlamme spent two months in Afghanistan reporting on the Canadian mission. While in Afghanistan, LaFlamme was embedded with Canadian troops on a grueling 12-day mission to track the Taliban.

LaFlamme is also integral to covering the major stories at home and was a major contributor to CTV’s extensive federal election coverage following party leaders across the country on the campaign trail.

Before her move to CTV National News with Lloyd Robertson, LaFlamme was the co-host of Canada AM. There, she interviewed the country’s most influential newsmakers. LaFlamme has also been a political correspondent for CTV News in Ottawa where she unraveled complicated political events and national issues for viewers.

Widely recognized for her work, including the 1999 Galaxi Award from the Canadian Cable Television Association in Vancouver, LaFlamme has received five Gemini nominations in the Best News Anchor category and picked up a prestigious RTNDA award for Best Live Coverage of a Breaking News Event for her continuous coverage of Mayerthorpe. Most recently she received an honourary Doctor of Laws degree from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.
