  • Transport Canada
  • tab a
Transport Canada has particular rules and regulations regarding flying unmanned aircraft.  For example, you cannot fly higher than 90 metres and cannot fly within 9 km of an airport.  If you’re looking to use a drone, which weighs 25kgs or more, you will need to apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate before you can use it. Drones which weigh between 2.1kg and 25kg might not require a Special Flight Operations Certificate if official exemptions are met. These exemptions include, but are not limited to, such things as age of operator, fly during daylight, keeping your aircraft/drone in direct line of sight and many others.
Transport Canada requires adequate liability insurance, regardless of the size of the drone. Transport Canada also advises a person or company must have at least $100,000 liability coverage. Since Transport Canada requires liability insurance for drone usage, flying without coverage could mean fines or penalties. Using a drone in an unsafe manner could result in local police being called in to determine if laws were broken, including privacy laws and the criminal code.
