Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

On July 17, 2019, Air Canada and Transat A.T. Inc. notified the Minister of Transport that Air Canada proposes to purchase Transat A.T. Inc.

On August 26, 2019, the Minister decided that the proposed purchase raises public interest issues about national transportation, and directed Transport Canada to begin a public interest assessment. The assessment will include input from the Commissioner of Competition, who will look at how the purchase would impact competition in the air sector.

A public consultation is a key part of the public interest assessment. Canadians are invited to share their views on the proposed purchase. There are two ways to participate:

  • Join the discussion forum via the “Have Your Say” tab
  • Send a written submission via the “Submissions” tab

NOTE: As a default, written submissions will be made public, with an option to withhold confidential/commercially-sensitive information.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions for more information on the assessment process, and then have your say.
