Apply for a transportation security clearance

You can now create, view, edit and check the status of your security status online.

The Transportation Security Clearance Program keeps the transportation system safe by doing background checks on aviation and marine workers.

To apply for a transportation security clearance, you will need to give:

  • basic biographical information,
  • fingerprints
  • a photo of your face, and
  • your work, study and residency history for the last 5 years
  • permission to run a background check

Background checks are done by CSIS, the RCMP, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (when needed).
