If you plan to fly a drone for fun you must learn and follow the laws that apply to recreational drone use. If you are using your drone for work or research, you will need special permission to fly your drone.
Until the new regulations take effect, these are the current rules to follow:
To fly a recreational drone (or model aircraft), you must follow the safety rules in the Interim Order Respecting the Use of Model Aircraft.
Review these rules before flying a drone for fun, if the drone weighs over 250 grams and under 35 kilograms. If your drone is 250 grams or less, read our tips for flying safe.
Following the safety rules helps keep people, aircraft and property safe. If you fly where you are not allowed or you break the rules below, you could be fined up to $3,000.
You are exempt from these rules if you are at a field or event approved by the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada.
