Welcome to the QSL Bureau Information Page
MAARC, Inc. Website

As a member society of the International Amateur Radio Union, RAC coordinates and provides funding for the Canadian QSL Bureau system.  The system comprises eleven provincial Incoming QSL Bureaus tied into National Incoming and Outgoing Bureaus.
The Moncton Area Amateur Radio Club, Inc. sponsors the Bob Sherwood Memorial VE9-VY2 QSL Bureau serving Radio Amateurs in New Brunswick and PEI.
MAARC has appointed Wayne Gillcash,  VE1RR,  as Bureau Manager


Radio Amateurs have the responsibility to verify that their
address is always correct in the Industry Canada database.

Please refer to Industry Canada document: RBR-4
“Standards for the Operation of Radio Stations in the Amateur Radio Service” It is available for downloading from the Industry Canada Website.
If your address differs from that shown in the IC Database please send an
e-mail giving your correct address to: or by CanPost to

Industry Canada – Amateur Radio Service Centre
PO Box 9654 Postal Station “T”
Ottawa   ON   K1G 6K9

The Bureau has many cards for Amateurs who do not currently have a minimum balance of $5 on deposit with the Bureau to cover forwarding of their cards. There are also hundreds of cards for VE9 and VY2 Amateurs who have “NEVER” registered with the Bureau.
A $5.00 cheque or money order to the Bureau at:

VE9-VY2 QSL Bureau
P. O.  Box 73
Moncton   NB   E1C 8R9

will register your call with the Bureau and ensure immediate shipment of all your cards.
