Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) is the national association for Amateur Radio in Canada. It is a not-for-profit membership association with headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, representing the interests of Amateur Radio all across Canada. Speaking on behalf of Canadian Radio Amateurs, RAC provides liaison with government agencies and carries the Amateur voice about regulatory and spectrum issues to the discussion table with government and industry leaders, nationally and internationally. RAC is the Canadian voting member society of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU).
RAC provides many services, publications and supplies to its members to enhance their enjoyment of Amateur Radio. To do so RAC relies heavily on countless volunteers across Canada from coast to coast to coast.
From time to time RAC will have a need for a specific volunteer and we will post that information on this page and also in The Canadian Amateur magazine. We will also use this page to recognize our great volunteers. If you do have a volunteer that you want to recognize please let us know by using our Member Stories webpage.
In addition to serving as a volunteer, you can also get involved by donating to:
- Defence of Amateur Radio Fund Trust
- Direct to RAC
- RAC Youth Education Program
- The Amateur Radio Emergency Service
- The RAC Foundation Program
- RAC Legacy Program
