During the USC Conference recently held in Vancouver (Oct 30 2018), Transport Canada provided an update on the proposed changes to Canadian legislation governing UAV/drones, which are now officially called Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS).
No solid date was given on when we will see the final version but they are targeting before end of 2018.
Roll-out will be done over a 6 month period once the regulations are published in Canada Gazette Part II.
The following is a summary of proposed regulations:

Important things to consider when hiring a UAV operator.
- Obviously ask if they are certified. You have every right to ask & the operator should be able to produce their SFOC & the legal documents allowing them to operate at the location & at the time you and they have co-ordinated.
- Does the UAV operator have the legal requirements pertaining to there SFOC on hand? ie: safety equipment & personnel.
- Has the UAV operator taken into consideration back-up equipment & supplies? ie: should be able to re-power equipment while out in the work area independent of local power grid & should have a back-up UAV that is part of their SFOC (so that it is legal to operate in the event the other becomes unserviceable.)
Here at j2 we have taken all of these steps & many more to bring you safe, reliable and honest work. Don't be afraid to ask questions!
These are just some things to think about when considering hiring a UAV operator, overall SAFETY is the most important part of any operation.
It's not a matter of who is right...it's what is right that counts!
