The Canadian Forces Affiliate Radio System (CFARS) is a program sponsored by National Defense Headquarters in which military installation, military unit/club and volunteer licensed Canadian Amateur Radio stations and operators participate and contribute to the aim of providing auxiliary communication on a local, national and international basis as an adjunct to existing military units and Amateur Radio communications.

Radio Amateurs are urged to participate in these military programs to support our armed forces and increase their operating skills. It's a great learning experience and the skills gained will enable members of MAARC, Inc. to better fulfill their role of "Serving the Community" when we are called to assist in emergencies.
