CJLL-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts multilingual community programming at 97.9 FM in Ottawa, Ontario, with studios located on Murray Street in Ottawa, while its transmitter is located in downtown Ottawa.
On October 4, 2001, the CRTC approved the application by CHIN Radio/TV International, the owner of the multilingual stations CHIN and CHIN-FM in Toronto, for a broadcasting licence for a specialty FM ethnic radio station in the National Capital Region at 97.9 MHz.  The station was launched in 2003. 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.
On February 10th 2016, CJLL-FM has dropped the simulcast of China Radio International in the evening and overnight hours and replaced it with dance music formatted programming originating from an internet broadcaster "DJFM Toronto."
