We are using drones, or remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS), to help us develop a regulatory framework by increasing what we know about beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations in Canada. Activities include whale monitoring and surveys, highway mapping in Inuvik, and the Arctic Unmanned Aircraft System Initiative.
This page lists future and ongoing flight operations by Canadian federal government departments and agencies. All flights have been authorized with a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC).
