Radio Amateurs of Canada provides support to clubs and other Amateur Radio organizations in promoting their events and Amateur Radio courses. If you have an event or course coming up please send the information to .

RAC also has a special webpage for upcoming Hamfests, Fleamarkets, Amateur Radio courses and other events and you can also post this information by yourself by completing the online form at: https://secure.eton.ca/rac/events/

Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), formerly Industry Canada, issues special event call signs for “Canadian significant commemorative non-commercial anniversaries or Canadian significant events” such as Canada 150.

For more information about how to apply for a special event call sign see “2. Call Signs for Special Events” at https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf02102.html

The request should be received at the Amateur Radio Service Centre at least 60 days before the beginning of the proposed event to provide ample time to process the request and allow the Centre to inform the Amateur community at least 30 days before the event.

ISED also lists upcoming special events on its website at:

https://apc-cap.ic.gc.ca/pls/apc_anon/query_spev$.startup

Radio Amateurs of Canada also used to provide an archive of these special events and call signs on our website but it became difficult to keep track of them as most clubs contacted ISED directly. Below are some of the special events and call signs from 1997 to 2017. You will see that a change occurred in 2015 and we ceased to record the information.
