List of  Transport Canada regulations.

Think safety first

More and more people are using unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), sometimes commonly called drones, for work and research. Transport Canada regulates their use to keep the public and our airspace safe.  
Before you fly your UAV, make sure you understand the rules that apply and follow them. Not doing so could put lives at risk and cost you up to $25,000 in fines.

Do

  • Only fly your drone during daylight and in good weather (not in clouds or fog).
  • Always keep your drone in sight, where you can see it with your own eyes – not only through an on-board camera, monitor or smartphone.
  • Make sure your drone is safe for flight before take-off. Ask yourself, for example, are the batteries fully charged? Is it too cold to fly?
  • Know if you need permission to fly and when to apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate
  • Respect the privacy of others – avoid flying over private property or taking photos or videos without permission.

Don’t fly:

  • Closer than 9 km from any airport, heliport, or aerodrome.
  • Higher than 90 metres from above the ground.
  • Closer than 150 metres from people, animals, buildings, structures, or vehicles.
  • In populated areas or near large groups of people, including sporting events, concerts, festivals, and firework shows.
  • Near moving vehicles, avoid highways, bridges, busy streets or anywhere you could endanger or distract drivers.
  • Within restricted airspace, including near or over military bases, prisons, and forest fires.
  • Anywhere you may interfere with first responders.
