CJDC-TV is a television station in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. It is owned by Astral Media and is the CBC Television affiliate in that city. It is also a part of a mini-network called Great West Television (GWTV).

CJDC first went on the air on January 15, 1959, and was originally owned by Mega Communications, the owner of CJDC radio.

The station was originally part of a two-station "sub-network" called Northern Television (NTV) since the early 1990s, until 2002, when it was disbanded and re-launched as Great West Television (joined by CKPG-TV). NTV and GWTV's programming consisted of mainly American shows imported and aired on CHUM Limited's NewNet/A-Channel stations, mixed with CBC's own programming. Great West Television itself would later become virtually non-existent in October 2006, when the CBC expanded its programming schedule to 24 hours a day, leaving only local news as the remaining parts of GWTV.

The news anchor through the 80's was Dick Sequens.

Unlike its sister station CFTK-TV in Terrace, CJDC is located in the Mountain Time Zone. Thus, its supper-hour newscast does not directly compete with the high-rated News Hour on Global and as such, it receives respectable ratings (according to BBM Canada). During Daylight Savings Time, CJDC is also located in the Pacific Time Zone.
