The station launched in 1971 when it began broadcasting as CBQR on 1110 kHz. In 1973, CBQR moved to 1160 and remained on that frequency until it moved to 105.1 MHz in 1987.
CBQR-FM carries the Nunavut regional radio service of CBC North, much of which originates at CFFB Iqaluit. The afternoon program Tusaajaksat, which focuses on the Kivalliq Region, originates from CBQR. Some of the CBC North regional programs air in both English and Inuktitut, others are only in Inuktitut.
The station also differs significantly from the main CBC Radio One schedule. Qulliq airs until 9 a.m. Central Time, and is followed by abbreviated broadcasts of The Current and q. In the afternoons, programming in Inuktitut, including Tausunni from Iqaluit and Tuttavik from the CBC North bureau in Kuujjuaq, Quebec, air in place of the national network programs.
Subsequently, in the evenings, the Inuktitut cultural magazines Ullumi Tusaqsauqaujut and Sinnaksautit air at 9 and 9:30 p.m. Central Time respectively; the Radio One schedule continues at 10 p.m.
