CJVF-FM is a multilingual ethnic South Asian radio station which broadcasts at 105.9 MHz/FM in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. Owned locally by Subanasiri Vaithilingam, the station broadcasts with an effective radiated power of 45 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 63.4 metres). [1]

The license to the station was granted by the CRTC on December 7, 2011, with the stiplulation that its programming consist of 60% Tamil, 20% Punjabi, 10% Filipino, and 10% English language programming.[1]

The radio station commenced broadcasting in March 2012, though broadcasting exclusively in Tamil. The radio station was the first all-Tamil broadcaster in North America.

On November 7, 2012, Vaithilingam submitted an application to the CRTC to change CJVF-FM's frequency to 102.7 FM. [2] [3] The change was required due to the sign on of neighbouring CFMS-FM in Markham, also located on 105.9 FM. The CRTC granted approval on January 30, 2014. [4]
