Study of unmanned air vehicle regulations: XC27-1/1-421-10E-PDF

an interim report /

"The House of Commons Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities (TRAN or the Committee) commenced a study of unmanned air vehicle (UAV) regulations in November 2016. To date, the Committee has convened five meetings with witnesses in Ottawa; witnesses represented a range of stakeholders including representatives of the traditional (“piloted”) aviation industry, UAV manufacturers and users, Transport Canada and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. All stakeholders supported growth in UAV operations and this interim report describes their key views with respect to the competitive environment for UAV policy globally, new regulations for UAV users in Canada, and the tools available for dealing with privacy intrusions and criminal activities perpetrated by UAV operators. Although the Committee may continue its study of UAV regulations in 2017, it has decided to prepare a report in the interim with recommendations for the Government of Canada to improve UAV safety and foster the Canadian UAV industry”--Introd., p. 2.
