CHMN-FM is a Canadian radio station serving Canmore and Banff, Alberta at 106.5 FM, and airs an adult contemporary format under the name 106.5 Mountain FM.

The station began broadcasting in 1983 as CFHC on the AM band at 1450 kHz in Canmore and CFHC-1 at 1340 kHz in Banff. CFHC was a semi-satellite of CFAC AM in Calgary until 1992.

CFHC has been through different ownerships and programming. In 1997, CFHC was given approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to convert to the FM band to 106.5 MHz in Canmore (CHMN), with a rebroadcast transmitter on the same frequency at 106.5 FM in Banff, known as (CHMN-FM-1). After the station moved to the FM band, the old AM signals were discontinued.

Undated: Both transmitters were briefly known as CJMT-FM, until it was changed to its current callsign CHMN.

CHMN Canmore and its transmitter CHMN-FM-1 in Banff are owned by Rogers Radio at 106.5 FM.
