The Moncton Area Amateur Radio Club was founded in 1966 as a successor to the Moncton Amateur Radio Club formed in 1936.  MAARC, Inc. was incorporated in 1977 under New Brunswick law as a not-for-profit organization.

Its objectives include promotion of Amateur Radio as a licensed and regulated activity under Federal jurisdiction; sponsorship of technical and social activities and provision of public communications service in times of emergency.

The Moncton Seniors ARC, Inc. was shelved in 2004 with its members continuing their association through membership in MAARC, Inc.    As a result,  a high percentage of MAARC, Inc. members are former members of the Seniors Club. MAARC, Inc. is affiliated with Radio Amateurs of Canada, Inc. and a member of the American Radio Relay League, Inc
