Let’s talk lasers

Consultation has concluded

We want Canadians to feel safe on the ground and in the sky.

Laser attacks on aircraft happen every day and put public safety and flight crews at risk. Lasers distract, disorient and can cause eye damage for pilots, resulting in high-risk situations during critical phases of flight.

We have put in place a new safety measure to enhance aviation and public safety by restricting where people can have battery-powered hand-held lasers over 1 milliwatt (mW). It is called an Interim Order.

Violating the Interim Order allows authorities to fine you immediately. We are also exploring more permanent solutions to ban the possession of hand-held lasers.

We have developed tools to help you understand the new restrictions and avoid a fine. These tools include:

We want to hear from businesses, retailers, consumers and air travellers about the best way to protect the public from unsafe use of lasers.
