CJLL-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts multilingual community programming at 97.9 FM in Ottawa, Ontario. The station was launched in 2003 by CHIN Radio/TV International, the owner of the multilingual stations CHIN and CHIN-FM in Toronto. Although CJLL has a very different call sign than its Toronto sibling stations, it shares their branding as CHIN Ottawa.

CJLL airs programming in over 20 languages, serving up to 40 different cultural communities. Mornings feature programming primarily in Arabic, Italian and Spanish, while Chinese (Cantonese & Mandarin) programming airs overnight. On evenings and weekends CHIN airs programming in Caribbean, Dutch, German, Greek, Gujarati, Haitian, Hindi, Hungarian, Irish Gaelic, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian and Urdu.

As of November 6, 2011, the China Radio International says CJLL is one of the radio stations that simulcasts their programs. [1]
