The delivery of the January-February 2017 issue of The Canadian Amateur magazine is taking longer than usual.
The timing of the statutory holidays for Christmas Day and New Year's Day, along with the seasonal delays at Canada Post, significantly reduced the time available to print and prepare the magazine for delivery.
We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.
The electronic TCA (e-TCA) version of the January-February 2017 TCA is available for viewing or download from the RAC website.

The Government of Canada’s “Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) 2017” initiative provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer job opportunities for young students between 15 and 30 years of age. CSJ is a competitive program.
Budget 2016 added $113 million per year for three years to the 2015 CSJ $107.5 million budget. It is an excellent way to support organizations and businesses in our community and to provide meaningful work experience for students in the area.
We encourage you to read the information provided in the links below and submit an application.
The deadline is January 20, 2017.
