Sasa Petricic and Derek Stoffel were arrested while covering the protests in Istanbul's Taksim Square.
Earlier Wednesday, the House of Commons passed a unanimous motion calling for their release.
Liberal foreign affairs critic Bob Rae introduced the motion.
Minister of State Diane Ablonczy said Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird had contacted the Turkish ambassador regarding the arrests and detention of Petricic and Stoffel.
The correspondents were covering ongoing protests against the Turkish government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Protesters feel the government has become increasingly authoritarian.
CBC said it had been in contact with the reporters and they were OK.
Turkish Ambassador Tuncy Babali told CBC he was unsure why they were detained.
