Modernizing fees for aircraft registration services

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

Consultation has concluded

As we continue modernizing our services, we want your feedback on changes we’re proposing for our aircraft registration services.

Registering aircraft makes sure that:

  • Transport Canada knows the identity of an aircraft’s owner and operator
  • Transport Canada can contact the owner about critical safety issues relating to the aircraft
  • aircraft operators, air traffic control units and other pilots can communicate effectively by using the aircraft registration mark as an identifier

The changes we’re proposing

Most of our aircraft registration fees have been the same for over 20 years and taxpayers are paying for most of these program costs. We’re proposing that the people who use our services pay a bigger share of the costs by:

  • adding fees for some services that are currently free, and
  • increasing fees

To reflect how our aircraft registration services have changed over the years, we’re also modernizing the services and fee structure by removing some fees

The proposed fees range from $70 to $650 and would come into effect in the spring of 2024.
