CFEI-FM is a French language Canadian radio station located in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, approximately 40 kilometres east of Montreal.

Owned and operated by Bell Media, it broadcasts on 106.5 MHz with an effective radiated power of 3,000 watts (class A) using an omnidirectional antenna.

The station has an oldies format since May 2003 (it previously had an adult contemporary format) and is part of the Boom FM network.

While CFEI-FM was originally opened on March 30, 1988 as a sister station to then-existing CKBS 1240[1][2] (also in Saint-Hyacinthe), the latter went dark only three years later, leading some observers to believe that the application for a new FM station really was a plan to transfer CKBS to FM by disguised means (at the time AM-to-FM transfers were still uncommon in Canada as such applications were then, unlike now, generally rejected by the CRTC).
