CJMJ-FM is an adult contemporary radio station at 100.3 FM in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The station uses the brand name Majic 100, and promotes itself as "Ottawa's Soft Rock". It is also one of three adult contemporary outlets (other than CHQM-FM Vancouver and CFJR-FM Brockville) owned by CTVglobemedia. Even though still using the "Soft" in its slogan (like all CTVglobemedia-owned ACs), the station has begun to lean in a more adult top 40 sound, while like its sister AC outlets, lean at a much younger audience. As a result, the station usually adds newer songs before any other AC station in Canada, while its playlist of newer songs is larger than any other adult contemporary radio station in North America.

The station is mostly known for being the #1 FM in Ottawa in most cases, like its Brockville & Vancouver outlets with the same AC format that leads the ratings those areas. In some cases, Majic could be beaten by Newcap Radio's contemporary hit radio outlet CIHT-FM.

The station was launched by Rawlco Communications in 1991, playing the station's very first song, Do You Believe in Magic by The Lovin' Spoonful. It was acquired by CHUM Limited in 1999, and by CTVglobemedia in 2007.

As of 2010, due to increased competition from low-powered adult contemporary station CJWL-FM (which leans heavy towards softer content), Majic 100 removed its longtime oldies show aired on Sunday mornings and added more hot adult contemporary songs to the playlist; however, they are still an adult contemporary station due to Rogers Media's CISS-FM serving as the hot AC station for Ottawa. In fact, 1960s songs have been largely dropped from the station, while still playing 1970s songs such as Moondance by Van Morrison.
