Canadian RT validity

Does anyone know how long is the RT licence issued by Industry Canada valid for?

There is no date mentioned on my licence..

The radio operator certificate (aeronautical) issued by Industry Canada has no expiry date.

Note that there is no information about the ROC(A) on your aviation document (pilot's license)

Thanks BB. Just one more question, does one need to carry the ROC(A) along with the aviation document while flying ?

Yes! I revalidated my Canadian Licence at the Edmonton Flying Club in December using my brand new Aviation Document and they pointed out to me that I wouldn't be able to fly solo, because I didn't have my RT licence!

It is now taped in the back of my Aviation Document. I suppose it was too much to expect one government department to co-operate with another when they were planning the Aviation Document!

I think the staff at the Edmonton Flying Club are morons. You have to show a radio license to the AP to get him to issue your license so is you have a PPL you by definition have a radio license. That license is issued by Industry Canada and the only regulation they promulgate is if asked you have 48 hrs to produce your piece of paper so again by definition you do not have to carry it with you. The aviation document on the other hand must be carried with you when you fly.

I was talking to a Fed who was involved in the whole blue book silliness. He said that the initial plan was for the radio operator permit to be included in the license book. However after initial queries by TC to Industry Canada the guy in charge moved to a different department and some faces changed at Industry Canada. The bottom line was that TC though that Industry Canada would not permit it and Industry Canada thought that TC did not want to proceed. By the time both sides realized they wanted the same thing the book was already in production and it was too late

This is the first time I have heard of "Industry Canada".

I have a "Aeronautical Restricted Radiotelephone Operator's Certificate" issued by the Department of Communications in 1975. Is it still valid?

Actually you don't have to show anything ref RT to get your license. Due to my military flying and writing the required exams, I received my ATPL(H). Only when I applied for a civilian job was there a requirement to produce an RT license.
