Transport Canada has announced a new online tool for people to report issues and concerns with drone operators and irresponsible unsafe use.
Canadians have reported unsafe drone operations to Transport Canada through various channels. We have developed this form to make it easier for Canadians to report such incidents, while helping Transport Canada gather more information via a single-entry-point. This form does not replace any official incident reporting system, such as the Civil Aviation Daily Occurrence Reporting System.
“In the past few years, the use of drones in Canada has increased tremendously and it’s a good time to be working with this industry. Transport Canada is taking a number of steps to improve safety and innovation in this sector, including engaging retailers so new drone users are aware of the rules from the start; introducing an efficient tool for Canadians to report safety issues; and helping drone users test new technology.”
The Honourable Marc Garneau
Minister of Transport
