Regulations Amending the Canadian Aviation Regulations (Aerodrome Work Consultations)

The changes to the Canadian Aviation Regulations, published in Canada Gazette, Part II, on October 19, 2016, will require aerodrome proponents to consult with stakeholders before developing an aerodrome or significantly changing an existing one. Stakeholders could include local citizens, municipalities, local aerodrome operators, air navigation service providers, and Transport Canada.

As of January 1, 2017, Canadians will have the opportunity to provide feedback on new aerodromes and on any significant changes to existing aerodromes (i.e. new runway or expansion of existing runway).

The following stakeholders would be considered in consultations:

  • All property owners bordering on the aerodrome land (farmers, neighbours, businesses, etc.)
  • Local government (municipalities)
  • Air navigation service providers
  • Other aerodrome owners/administrators
  • Protected land authorities

For aerodrome developments in the built-up area of a city or town, all property owners within a 4,000 m radius of the proposed development must be consulted.
