CHFR-FM is a Canadian English-language community FM radio station at 96.5 FM in Hornby Island, British Columbia.

Owned by Hornby Community Radio Society, the station initially received CRTC approval in 2004 for a very low-power English-language developmental community radio station[1] to broadcast at five watts at 91.5 FM; however, the station would be reassigned its new, and current, frequency at 96.5 FM in 2007.[2][3] The station under its original license never went on the air, and its license had lapsed.[4]

On August 17, 2010, Hornby Community Radio Society received a new license from the CRTC, with the same frequency and parameters.[4] On April 2, 2014, the station received approval to operate under a standard community radio license at 96.5 MHz at 50 watts, replacing its previous developmental license.
