CHMN-FM is a Canadian radio station serving Canmore and Banff, Alberta at 106.5 FM, and airs an adult contemporary format under the name 106.5 Mountain FM.

The station began broadcasting in 1983 as CFHC on the AM band at 1450 kHz in Canmore and CFHC-1 at 1340 kHz in Banff. CFHC was a semi-satellite of sister station CFAC in Calgary until 1992.

CFHC has been through different ownerships and programming. On July 10, 1997, CFHC was given approval from the CRTC to convert to the FM band to 106.5 MHz in Canmore, becoming CHMN-FM, with a rebroadcast transmitter on the same frequency at 106.5 FM in Banff (CHMN-FM-1). [1] After the station moved to the FM band, the old AM signals were discontinued.

Both transmitters were briefly known as CJMT-FM, until it was changed back to its current callsign CHMN.[citation needed]
