CFTF-TV is a French-language television station in Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec, and an affiliate of TQS, a commercial television network in Quebec. The station is owned by Télé Inter-Rives, which also owns Radio-Canada affiliate CKRT and TVA affiliate CIMT, making the station part of a so-called “triple-stick”—three stations owned by a single owner.

The station airs a 15-minute regional newscast at 5:30 p.m. on weekdays from its Rivière-du-Loup studio, with additional reporting from a bureau in Carleton, Quebec at co-owned CHAU.

On June 1, 2007, the CRTC approved a joint application by TQS and Télé Inter-Rives to convert the TQS station in Rimouski, CJPC-TV, from a transmitter of CFJP Montreal to a transmitter of CFTF. As part of the deal, a news bureau would be built in Rimouski, and a limited amount of local programming would be added on CJPC.


CFTF is only one of two TQS affiliates to have more than one transmitter (the other is Val d'Or's CFVS).

The station is also available on cable in most major New Brunswick cities and is available on Bell TV.
