CBAF-FM-5 is a French-language Canadian radio station located in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Owned and operated by the (government-owned) Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (French: Société Radio-Canada), it broadcasts on 92.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 91,000 watts (class C) using an omnidirectional antenna.

The station has an ad-free news/talk format and is part of the Première Chaîne network, which operates across Canada. Like all Première Chaîne stations, but unlike most FM stations, it broadcasts in mono.

Despite its call sign, CBAF-FM-5 is no longer a rebroadcaster of CBAF-FM, as it was a separate station by 1987.[1]

The station produces a morning drive show (Le Réveil, Monday to Thursday from 6 to 9 a.m. and Friday from 6 to 10 a.m.) and an afternoon drive show (Les 400 coups, Monday to Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.).[2]

CBAF-FM-5 was originally identified as CBAF-19-FM; the call sign change took effect on September 1, 1989,[3] as the old 1300 kHz AM signal of CBAF was shut down. [4]
