CJLI (AM 700, The Light) is a Canadian radio station, that broadcasts a Christian radio format at 700 kHz/AM in Calgary, Alberta. The station is licensed to broadcast at 50,000 watts during the day and 20,000 watts at night, with additional restrictions to protect Class A clear-channel stations WLW in Cincinnati, Ohio and KBYR in Anchorage, Alaska.

Owned by Touch Canada Broadcasting, the station received CRTC approval on April 24, 2009.[1] The station planned to broadcast from a transmitter site from the Black Diamond area southwest of Calgary, but was unable to secure a site, due to local opposition. In November 2013, the station acquired a site north of Black Diamond, in hopes of broadcasting from there.[2]

On June 29, 2015, Touch Canada Broadcasting launched CJLI, branded as AM 700, The Light. [3]
