It has become apparent, through examination of records maintained by Industry Canada and by Radio Amateurs of Canada, that the Canadian callsign database is becoming corrupted by inaccurate information. One of the prime reasons for this is the failure of some Radio Amateurs to advise IC of address changes.
"The holder of an Amateur Radio Operator Certificate shall notify the Department within thirty (30) days with respect to a change of mailing address."
Please note that this refers to a MAILING address and that it is not an option but a requirement.
You can inform Industry Canada of your change of address online or you can contact the Industry Canada Amateur Radio Service Centre at: Phone: 1-888-780-3333 (toll free) Fax:(613) 991-5575 E-mail:
Industry Canada Amateur Radio Service Centre P.O. Box 9654 Postal Station "T" Ottawa, ON K1G 6K9
If you are a RAC member you will also need to advise RAC of your address change. You can update your address in "My profile" in the member section of the RAC website so that we can keep your copies of The Canadian Amateurgoing to your correct address.
Thank you for ensuring that IC's and RAC's databases are accurate and up to date.
