CBU-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts the programming of the CBC Radio 2 network in Vancouver, British Columbia. The station broadcasts at 105.7 FM.

The station was originally launched in 1947 as an FM simulcast of CBU. It was not part of the CBC's original FM network in 1960, but became part of the 1964 relaunch.

The station operates from the CBC Regional Broadcast Centre on Hamilton Street in Downtown Vancouver. As with most Radio 2 stations, presently there is no Vancouver-specific programming on the station apart from short weather updates. However, Saturday Afternoon at the Opera and In Concert, both hosted by Bill Richardson, currently originate from Vancouver.
