CJFB-FM is a community/tourist information radio service that operates at 105.5 FM in Bolton, Ontario.

Rick Sargent, the owner of the station, was given approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) on October 15, 2007 to broadcast on the frequency 105.5 FM at Bolton.

On April 9, 2008, the station proposed to convert CFGM-FM 102.7 Caledon to a transmitter of CJFB-FM.[1] That application was denied on July 31, 2008.[2]

On March 14, 2012, the CRTC approved the application by Haliburton Broadcasting Group Inc. for authority to acquire from Rick Sargent the assets of CJFB-FM and CFGM-FM, and for broadcasting licences to continue the operation of the stations.[3]

On April 23, 2012 Vista Broadcast Group, which owns a number of radio stations in western Canada, announced a deal to acquire Haliburton Broadcasting, in cooperation with Westerkirk Capital.[4] The transaction was approved by the CRTC on October 19, 2012.[5]
