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

Originally a daytimer on AM 1190, CJMR was launched in 1974 by the owners of CHWO. In 1990, the station moved to its current frequency [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1989/DB89-699.HTM Decision CRTC 89-699] ] 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.

CJMR's programming is mainly South Asian (Hindi and Punjabi) with some Arabic, Bengali, Croatian, Dutch, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Sinhalese, Somali and Ukrainian programming in the evenings and on weekends.
