RAC Affiliated Club Insurance Program 2021: Applications are now being processed

Radio Amateurs of Canada is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications from Amateur Radio clubs across the country for our Liability Insurance Program for 2021.

RAC runs the RAC Affiliated Club Insurance Program each year to provide Canadian Amateur Radio clubs with liability insurance coverage – often needed by clubs in order to operate in public venues or for public events – at rates well below standard commercial coverage packages. In addition, all RAC members who are also members of participating clubs will see the liability coverage extended, automatically, and at no charge, to their own individual Amateur Radio activities.

There are no major limitations or restrictions to which clubs may apply to the program, but they must be an incorporated club within Canada and be either affiliated with RAC or be willing to affiliate as part of the application process.

More information about the RAC Affiliated Club Insurance Program – including details of coverage, fee calculations and a step-by-step description of the application process for new clubs – can be found on the RAC website at https://www.rac.ca/insurance.

Clubs that are not currently participating and are interested in more information about the costs of the program may contact the RAC office and provide information about their club for an estimate of the potential fees. The RAC Office may be reached via email at racgm@rac.ca or by calling the toll free number 1-877-273-8304. RAC Office hours are 10 am to 4 pm, Eastern Time, every weekday.

Applications are open now and RAC will continue to accept applications throughout 2021.

As a result of the global pandemic, mail delivery continues to be very slow so we strongly advise that all applications be completed online and sent digitally to the RAC Office.

Important: Please note that if your club requires official documentation by January 1, 2021, then the application should be submitted either physically or electronically to the RAC office by December 21, 2020. Applications received after this date will still be accepted but may be subject to delays in processing.

If you or a member of your club have any further questions about the insurance program, please feel free to contact the RAC Office for assistance. Thank you!
