Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) becomes an integral part of Amateur Radio culture; when a new Ham obtains his/her certification, they rush to join RAC and enjoy the benefits of the organization which is recognized both nationally and internationally as the voice of Amateur Radio in Canada. If it is an Amateur Radio question, concern or issue. RAC is the organization that addresses those concerns and supplies the answers and guidance.

We attain high service levels; we meet the needs of our members and serve as an example to other international Amateur Radio organizations on how to service their constituents. Director, Executive and Assistant Director positions are coveted by RAC members, who are equitably represented by their elected officials. The annual convention is well attended and through technology, is made available to a wider range of members who cannot attend in person.

RAC pushes communications to their members, through a variety of methods. Ham nets, local club communications, face-to-face meetings, presentations, newsletters.  The Canadian Amateur magazine, social networks and e-mail/web bulletins are among the devices employed. We achieve a level of communication with the public, and the various levels of government that truly reflects our capabilities and the extent to which we can contribute to both emergency communications and public awareness of the abilities of our hobby.

RAC promotes education and “elmering” to new Hams, and supports the training and coaching of RAC volunteers to achieve exemplary results, at the municipal, provincial and national levels. The new RAC Field Training program is the recognized tool leveraged by our ARES groups (emphasis added).  Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization, and we develop an appreciation program that reflects our reliance on their abilities and commitment. All RAC members recognize and appreciate what the individual volunteers contribute, and the value that RAC, as an organization, brings to Amateur Radio in Canada.

RAC achieves a stable financial position, with a positive, growing membership which truly reflects the outstanding representation that RAC makes to Industry Canada and the world of Amateur Radio in Canada.
