ISED Releases Updated Policy on Amateur Radio and Examinations

On March 22, 2022, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) released updated versions of two important policy documents: RIC-1 – Guide for Examiners Accredited to Conduct Examinations for Amateur Radio Operator Certificates and RIC-3 – Information on the Amateur Radio Service.

Both documents were updated to reflect the changes made to the Radiocommunication Regulations, specifically the rescinded ISED $20 examination fee for Amateur Radio Operator Certificates and the removal of certificates that are no longer issued by ISED. Other revisions include “editorial corrections for clarity” and the conversion to electronic format of the form to apply to become an Accredited Examiner.

Comments and suggestions may be directed to the following address:

Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada
Spectrum Management Operations Branch
235 Queen Street Ottawa ON  K1A 0H5
