CFGL-FM is a French language Canadian radio station located in Laval, Quebec, near Montreal. While the station's city of licence is Laval and its studios are actually in that city, it operates as a de facto Montreal station. It is the flagship of the "Rythme FM" branding network (which the station used since 1999), which operates across much of Quebec. It was founded in September 1968 by Jean-Pierre Coallier and Roland Saucier.

Sold to Cogeco in 1986, it broadcasts on 105.7 MHz with an effective radiated power of 41,000 watts (class C1) using an omnidirectional antenna.[1]

CFGL-FM began as a beautiful music[2] station back in 1968, switching to soft adult contemporary by 1992. The station is known for being the top-rated French-language radio station in North America.[3]
