Technical and Administrative Frequency Lists (TAFL)
Pending frequencies are not authorized assignments and are subject to being changed prior to final authorization. Pending frequencies are listed as Frequency Status "0".
On January 19, 2008, Industry Canada migrated all
radio station licences and broadcast certificates to the NAD-83 standard. All
reports and files produced by the Department after that date follow this standard.
These Canadian frequency lists use the metric system.
Therefore all linear measurements, for example, are expressed in metres or kilometres.
All geographical coordinates are in the NAD-83 standard.
Information on the frequency assignments to the Department of National
Defence or to our security agencies, is not included in the lists. These
exclusions represent approximately 6% of the lists.
All compressed data files (.zip) must be decompressed after having been
downloaded before attempting to view or use the data. Additional
instructions are provided in the Help page.
Previous and current changes made to the frequency data files are detailed
in the Update to the List page.
Most of the data files are updated every month. The date of the last
update of each data file is indicated in red characters YYYY/MM/DD.
