Posted October 25, 2018 15:11:08As of October 25th, 2017, the Canadian government will allow the private sector to launch drones and helicopters over the country, subject to certain requirements.
The drones and helicopter will be used for surveillance and reconnaissance, but they will not be used to take pictures of anyone and only be used in the areas designated by the RCMP for such purposes.
It’s not yet clear exactly what these “designations” will be.
The government is also currently considering rules that will allow private operators to fly drones over designated areas for private use without the need for a permit.
This means that the government is allowing for a lot of the private drones that are currently flying around to be used without a permit, but the rules are unclear and it is unclear what the rules will be regarding helicopters and drones that have been flown by the public.
The government will be using the Canadian Drone Policy for this period to decide whether or not private operators can operate over designated airspace, which includes roads, highways, parklands, lakes, and even rivers.
The drone policy will define what “designated airspace” means and what airspace can be used as part of a drone’s operations.
This will allow for certain restrictions on what types of drones can be operated in designated airspace.
This is a significant step in allowing the private drone industry to operate within Canada, but is not the same as the government permitting them to operate in Canada, as the drones must be registered as commercial.
This policy is not final, and the regulations may change, but it’s likely that this will be the last step for the private operators of drones in Canada.
This has not stopped a lot more drone manufacturers from releasing drone-related products in Canada over the past few years.
