The station went on the air as CBAF-FM on April 15, 1983. For a long time, it was the only station in Radio-Canada's FM service that didn't serve any portion of Quebec. It adopted its current call sign in 1989 after Radio-Canada AM outlet CBAF moved to the FM band and picked up the CBAF-FM call letters.
