As announced in The Canadian Amateur magazine, the RAC Band Planning Committee has completed the new proposed 2m band plan.

Radio Amateurs of Canada band planning committees coordinate the development of National Band Plans to provide guidance for the usage of the Canadian Amateur bands. These committees are made up of representatives from all regions of Canada.

The committees prepare interim band plans after consulting with Amateurs across the country. These plans not only take into account the wishes of Canadian Amateurs, but are also coordinated with band usage in other countries through membership in the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU).

The RAC Board of Directors extends thanks to the members of the RAC Band Planning Committee for undertaking the task of reviewing and updating the VHF and UHF band plans over the next year.

A draft of the band plans is provided on the RAC website at the link provided below for final input before it is submitted to the RAC Board of Directors for approval. 

Draft plan:
