Flying Your Drone

Transport Canada has recently issued new rules on how to fly a recreational drone safely and legally in Canada. 

Please visit https://www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/aviation/drone-safety.html to ensure you are meeting all requirements, and are flying in safe airspace. 


Following the rules issued by Transport Canada will help keep people, aircraft, and property safe. If you do not follow these rules, you could face fines of up to $3,000.

Report a Drone

Please contact Transport Canada to report a drone that you feel is not following the regulations. Report a drone incident (canada.ca).

Additional Information

For more information please visit the Transport Canada - Flying your drone safely and legally website page.


If you have a requirement to fly your drone within the 9-kilometer radius controlled airspace around the airport you will require proper approvals from both Transport Canada and the local NavCanada Flight Service Station prior to doing so.
