CJWL-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts a soft adult contemporary format (with evening specialty shows focusing on pop standards and instrumental easy listening) at broadcasting at 98.5 FM in Ottawa. It was launched on February 20, 2006 and is owned by Evanov Radio Group. CJWL's studios are located on York Street in the ByWard Market, while its transmitter is located in downtown Ottawa.

CJWL has a similar format to that company's CKDX in the Greater Toronto Area, and is branded as "The Jewel 98.5 FM". The station was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in 2005.[1]

The CJWL callsign formerly belonged to Haliburton Broadcasting Group's CFIF in Iroquois Falls.

On October 6, 2009, CJWL received CRTC approval to increase power from 485 watts to 1,100 watts.[2]
