CIME-FM is a French-language Canadianmarker radio station located in Saint-Jérômemarker, Quebecmarker, about 40 kilometres north of Montrealmarker.

Owned and operated by Corus Entertainment, it broadcasts on 103.9 MHz using a directional antenna with an average effective radiated power of 11,700 watts and a peak effective radiated power of 39,300 watts (class C1).

The station also operates two relays : a low-power one (CIME-FM-1) in Val-Morinmarker, on 102.9 MHz using a directional antenna with an average effective radiated power of 4 watts and a peak effective radiated power of 14 watts (class LP), and a stronger one (CIME-FM-2) in Mont-Tremblantmarker, on 101.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 800 watts (class B) using an omnidirectional antenna.

CIME-FM opened in 1977 and originally had a middle of the road format, which gradually evolved over time to a more traditional hot adult contemporary format.

The call sign alludes to the mountainous nature of the Laurentides region ("cime" being the French word for mountain peak).

CIME-FM was originally located in Sainte-Adèlemarker, about 70 kilometres north of Montreal, and had a 50,000 watts omnidirectional signal on 99.5 MHz. The station moved to Saint-Jérôme in mid-1998, at the same time that it moved to 103.9 MHz and inaugurated its 101.3 MHz relay (the smaller 102.9 MHz one was operational since the beginning). These changes in frequencies were a result of a deal to allow the 99.5 MHz to be used in Montreal for the new CJPX-FM. As a result, CIME-FM can only be heard now in parts of Montreal itself, but has a better coverage in their targeted area (the Laurentides region).

The station is especially famous or infamous (depending on the point of view) for its now-discontinued practices of airing subliminal messages intended to induce relaxation at night [249380] and using a system of audio tones as a mosquito repellent .
