CBCX-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts Radio-Canada's Ici Musique network at 89.7 FM in Calgary, Alberta. CBCX's studios are located on Westmount Boulevard Northwest west of downtown Calgary, while its transmitter is located at Old Banff Coach Road and 85 Street Southwest in Calgary.

The station also has a rebroadcast transmitter CBCX-FM-1 in Edmonton at 101.1 MHz.

Both of the station's transmitters were licensed in 2002[1] and launched in early 2003.[2]

On January 20, 2012, it was announced that Radio-Canada have plans to close down the AM transmitter of Edmonton's Première Chaîne outlet, CHFA, and swap frequencies between its nested repeater in Edmonton, CHFA-10-FM (at 101.1 MHz), and the much-stronger CBCX-FM-1 (at 90.1 MHz).[3] This application was approved on June 22, 2012.
