Aircraft registration and leasing

You must notify Transport Canada, in writing, within seven (7) days of your change of address. There is no fee to report a change of address.

Note: if your aircraft has two or more owners, only the person listed as mail recipient must report a change in address.

Update the address on your aircraft registration documents on-line using GC-Key. Learn more about GCKey, or sign-in and update your information.
If you would rather change your address by mail

  1. Enter your new address on the certificate of registration application section. Sign the application form in ink.
  2. Mail the certificate of registration to a Transport Canada Civil Aviation regional office.

When we receive your certificate, we’ll mail you a new certificate with the updated address.

Interim certificates

While you wait for your aircraft to be re-registered, you can activate an interim certificate of registration.

  1. Print your new address and the date it changed in the boxes on your interim certificate
  2. Keep your interim certificate on board your aircraft until we mail you a new one

Interim certificates are valid until the earliest of the following days:

  • the last day of the 3-month period following the sale of the aircraft by the previous owner
  • the day on which there is another transfer of custody and control
  • the day on which you receive a new certificate of registration

Note: if you have an old version of the certificate of registration, without the portion used for the interim certificate, you can’t activate an interim certificate for a change of address.

In this case, inform us in writing of your new address and we will issue you a temporary certificate. This will allow you to return your certificate of registration and to continue operating your aircraft. There is no fee.
