Amateurs and Clubs

There are many advantages to joining an Amateur Radio club. Clubs are a great resource and can help ease the transition by pointing you in the right direction: purchasing and setting up the right equipment; helping to explain the terminology; and providing a much-needed social network. Clubs also are a great way to get involved in activities such as Field Day, Public Service and ARES Events and Hamfests/Fleamarkets. A list of Canadian Amateur Radio clubs from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from Point Pelee to the Arctic is provided below. If your club is not listed, please make sure your club’s President or Secretary submits the required information so it can be included. Note: Club information changes frequently. If you have comments or suggestions to make the Canadian Club pages more user-friendly, please send them to the coordinator at:
