It broadcasts on 91.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 36,200 watts (class C1) using an omnidirectional antenna located atop Mount Royal. Radio Ville-Marie received CRTC approval in 1994 to operate a new religious French-language FM radio programming at Montreal.
This radio station is Catholic and has a religious broadcasting format. Since its inception in 1995 it identifies itself as "Radio Ville-Marie". CIRA-FM is not a commercial broadcaster and as such does not carry paid advertising.
In addition to the Montreal station on 91.3 FM, CIRA-FM also broadcasts on the following frequencies:
- CIRA-FM-1: Sherbrooke (100.3 FM) (licensed to Radio-Soleil-Estrie as a separate radiocommunication distribution undertaking) - launched September 20, 1998 
- CIRA-FM-2: Trois-Rivières (89.9 FM) - launched September 9, 2005 
- CIRA-FM-3: Victoriaville (89.3 FM) - launched January 5, 2006 
- CIRA-FM-4: Rimouski (104.1 FM)
A transmitter for Canada's National Capital Region, CIRA-5 (1350 AM) in Gatineau, was on the air from 2012 to 2015. That transmitter received CRTC approval on September 23, 2009. In 2015, CIRA-5 was shutdown due to lack of money to keep that transmitter going. CIRA's FM transmitters remain unaffected with CIRA-5's shutdown. The 1350 AM frequency was a former frequency that was used by CHVR in Pembroke, Ontario, until it moved to FM in 1996.
