IRG is now accepting payments and membership applications and renewals on-line.  You can submit your application on-line and make payments using PayPal on our new Join or Renew page.  New members, be sure to fill out all the information on the form so we can keep in touch.  Renewing members, please fill in a form so we can verify and update the information we have.

As always, amateurs can still join or renew via Canada Post, just download the MS Word form here, print it and mail it with your payment.  Instructions are on the form.  You can also join or renew at the next IRG meeting in person, or via any of the area representatives.


The International Repeater Group is funded by Emergency Measures Organization, local municipalities and of course the membership. The annual membership dues are $15. All funds are used to keep the network up and running, by purchasing repeater equipment and maintaining the network.

Membership runs from April - April  or September - September, which are the months of our semi annual meetings.

To gain access to the linking codes for the IRG network please consider joining the IRG. The network is funded partially by Emergency Measures Organization and municipalities, but without Amateur Radio Operators membership, the only users of the network, funding for this may very well be lost. Of course the funds collected from membership dues help alot but it is also important for our sponsors to see that we have lots of available operators in the event of an emergency. We know you would be there in the event of an emergency, but we need to see the numbers of available operators.   So please if you use the network we would greatly appreciate your support. The network may very well save you in an emergency someday.
