Owned and operated by Radio-Classique Montréal, an independent company 90% owned by Jean-Pierre Coallier, it broadcasts on 99.5 MHz using an omnidirectional antenna with an effective radiated power of 8,700 watts (class B).
The station has had a classical music commercial format, similar to Classic FM, since its inception on June 25, 1998. It identifies itself as "Radio-Classique Montréal CJPX 99,5 FM". The station is the first successful commercial classical music station in Montreal, following the failure of CJRM-FM in 1968 and decades of reluctance since then by the CRTC to allow such a station to go on the air.
CJPX's main studios are located in Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Notre-Dame in the Saint Lawrence River. It has a secondary studio off the lobby at Place des Arts in downtown Montreal. It transmits from Mount Royal.
The station's full banner, including logo, features Beethoven.
