CFIN-FM is a French-language Canadian radio station located in Lac-Etchemin, Quebec.

It broadcasts on 100.5 MHz with an effective radiated power of 9,600 watts (class B) using an omnidirectional antenna.

The station has a variety format and operates under a community radio licence. CFIN-FM received approval in 1991 [1] and went on the air in 1992.[2][3] One of their most famous shows was the weekly "Son Noir des Nuits Blanches", mainly a classic-rock show broadcast on Saturday nights from midnight to 2 A.M. from 1993 to 1998.

CFIN-FM operates four rebroadcasters. The most powerful one, CFIN-FM-1, is located in Armagh,[4] and broadcasts on 103.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 1,390 watts (class A) using an omnidirectional antenna. The other ones all broadcast on 105.5 MHz using a directional antenna with a peak effective radiated power of 50 watts (class LP); these rebroadcasters are CFIN-FM-2 in Saint-Malachie, CFIN-FM-3 in Saint-Anselme and CFIN-FM-4 in Saint-Jean-d'Orléans. Their average effective radiated power is respectively 34, 32 and 35 watts.[5]

The call sign CFIN-FM was previously used by an unrelated defunct private station[6] in Coaticook which operated from 1984 to 1987.[7] That station had to close after the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission refused to renew its licence.[8]
