Canada Band Plans

This article gathers all information regarding band plans in Canada. This band plan only covers bands that have repeaters operating on them, from 10-meters and up.

Repeaterbook does not conduct any enforcement of the band plans and does not refuse to document stations that are outside of the coordination guidelines or band plan. A repeater listing on Repeaterbook does not, in any way, endorse a particular repeater or establish the legality of the repeater's operation.

This band plan is provided as a courtesy to users and is used as a template to help administrators and users determine the correlated input frequency of a repeater channel.

Radio Amateur Canada (RAC)

The Canadian band plans are established by Radio Amateur Canada (RAC). The list below is abbreviated. Please consult RAC materials for a complete band plan.
