As published in the Gazette, Transport Canada has proposed changes to RPAS legislation that significantly reduce the requirements for Special Flight Operations Certificates. This will allow RPAS operators who meet and comply with clearly defined rules to operate freely, without first obtaining Transport Canada’s permission. Transport Canada personnel, previously bogged down reviewing SFOC applications, will be free to focus on other duties, including oversight and inspection of UAV operators.

This webinar will review the highlights of the proposed changes ahead of the deadline for comments. 

Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • The new proposed legislation
  • How it will affect the small unmanned aircraft industry
  • How to submit comments to Transport Canada
  • The timeline for the changes

Target Audience

  • Existing RPAS operators
  • Those interested in operating a RPAS
  • Companies, risk managers, project managers and managers accountable for operating or contracting RPAS services


  • General provisions

  • Rules for limited operations (rural)

  • Conclusion
