CJMR is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts multicultural programming at AM 1320 in Mississauga, Ontario.

Originally a daytimer on AM 1190, CJMR was launched in 1974 by the owners of CHWO.[1] In 1990, the station moved to its current frequency [2] and began a 24-hour broadcast schedule. Formerly a mixture of multilingual and Christian programming, CJMR moved to exclusively multilingual programming in 2001 when the religious programming moved to the new CJYE.

In 1986, the station was denied a licence to move to the FM dial. [3] CJMR and CHMB are the only stations in Canada which broadcast on 1320 kHz.

CJMR's programming is mainly South Asian (Hindi and Punjabi) with some Croatian, Dutch, Filipino, Gujarati, Italian, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Ukrainian and Urdu programming in the evenings and on weekends.
