Member societies of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) operate a worldwide system of QSL Bureaus. Radio Amateurs of Canada as the Canadian member-society, operates a National Incoming Bureau.

Cards received from IARU member societies by the RAC National Incoming Bureau are sorted and forwarded to the Incoming Bureau in each call area.

All domestic cards (VA-VE-VY) to Canadian Amateurs should be sent directly to the RAC National Incoming Bureau and not to the Outgoing Bureau. Domestic cards sent to the Outgoing Bureau will experience a delay. Only cards for destinations outside Canada are to be sent to the Outgoing QSL Bureau. Note: This QSL service is only available to RAC members and RAC Affiliated Clubs as a benefit of RAC membership.

Send the bureau in your call area a quantity of 5 x 7 1/2″ self-addressed envelopes. At the top left corner of each envelope, print your call sign. On the top right corner of each envelope, place enough postage for the bureau to mail 50 grams of cards (see Canada Post rates).

Send the bureau in your call area $5.00 and your name, call sign and address. The bureau will mail you cards, applying the cost of envelopes and postage against your $5.00 credit. You will be informed when you need to send more money.

Method C: Credit with Envelopes

Send the bureau in your call area $5.00 and self-addressed envelopes. Do not place postage on the envelopes. You will be advised when you need to send more money or more self-addressed envelopes. Please note: all bureaus offering Method C now prefer to use Method B.

Method D: Credit with Labels

Send the bureau in your call area $5.00 together with a supply of self-addressed adhesive labels with print large enough for use on envelopes. You will be informed when you need to send more money or labels.
