Drone Safety

More and more people are flying drones. Transport Canada regulates their use to keep the public and other airspace users safe. Before you take to the skies, make sure you understand the rules and follow them. Not doing so could put lives at risk and cost you up to $25,000 in fines and/or jail time.

Transport Canada is proposing new regulations to address the safety requirements, growing popularity, and economic importance of drones. Learn more about the Proposed rules for drones in Canada.
