Proposed Regulations as of August 9th, 2018

Unmanned Aircraft Systems –

Update on Regulatory Progress
— Canadian Aviation Regulation Advisory Council | May 23rd, 2018

An update on proposed regulations, May 23, 2018

Stakeholders were invited to hear TCCA’s proposal on the future of drone regulations. Below is a rundown of these regulations presented on May 23 in Ottawa. These will go to Gazette II before the end of the year. It is important to note that these will form the recommendations to Treasury Board ministers and as such are not final or official until they are published in the Gazette.

Our certificate programs are designed to assist students explore current market trends, gain relevant skills that can be applied immediately in the real world, and create positive results in their workplace.
