It states: Call signs are assigned to individuals for a lifetime. However, there are cases when call signs become available for reassignment. In the case of an amateur requesting a replacement call sign, the unwanted call sign would be returned to the block of available call signs at the time of exchange. In the case of a deceased amateur, Industry Canada policy allows for a member of the immediate family to apply for the call sign. Immediate family includes father, mother, step-parent, foster parent, guardian, brother, sister, spouse, child, grandchild, stepchild and adopted members of the family. If no family member has applied for the call sign within one year of the death, it will be returned to the block of available call signs.

 

All call signs become available for reassignment when the current year equals the certificate holder’s birthdate plus 125 years.

 

Death - successor of a club call-sign if the current holder of that call has passes away?
