Summary of the issue

NAV CANADA continues to review and make changes to the Level of Service relative to air traffic services provided in many locations. Changes to airspace classification, design, and many local ATS levels, or hours, occur every year.

What COPA is doing

COPA continues to monitor these changes with the goal to make members aware of changes in service, especially when consultations are involved.

Support our efforts to protect your Freedom to Fly

The Freedom to Fly Fund was created to guarantee that COPA would have the resources to take on emergency actions, legal or otherwise, in the defence of the Canadian Freedom to Fly.

This fund is made available through the generous contributions of COPA members and supporters, to ensure that we continue to enjoy our freedoms, such as the right to have an airstrip on your property.

Uses of the fund include legal actions such as the federal jurisdiction issue that was successfully brought before the Supreme Court of Canada in 2009-2010.
