CJDC is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 890 AM in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. The station, owned by Astral Media, airs a country music format.

The station was launched in 1947 by local broadcaster Radio Station CJDC (Dawson Creek, B.C.) Ltd. as an affiliate of the CBC's Trans-Canada Network, broadcasting on AM 1350. In 1959, the company also launched CJDC-TV, a CBC Television affiliate, and changed its corporate name to CJDC Ltd. At a later date, the corporate name was changed to Mega Communications.

The station adopted its current frequency in 1986, [1] and added a rebroadcaster on 92.7 FM at Tumbler Ridge in 1988 with the callsign CJDC-1-FM. [2]

The stations were sold to Okanagan Skeena Broadcasters in 1997, to Telemedia in 1999. Telemedia was later taken over by Standard Radio in 2002, and most of Standard's assets, including the CJDC stations, were in turn acquired by Astral in 2007.
