Proposed Amendments to the Secure Air Travel Regulations

From Public Safety Canada

Current Status: Closed

Consultation Description

The purpose of this consultation is to obtain your feedback on amendments under consideration to the Secure Air Travel Regulations (SATR) in order to move towards an enhanced Passenger Protect Program (PPP)

How to Participate

Why

The Government of Canada believes that it is important for Canadians to be informed and engaged on Canada's national security framework. As part of the Government's commitment to openness and transparency, Public Safety Canada is consulting Canadians on key elements of Canada's national aviation security laws and policies to ensure they reflect the rights, values and freedoms of Canadians.

In addition, as part of the Cabinet Directive on Streamlining Regulation, there is a requirement to identify parties that may be interested or affected by the regulatory proposal that is put forward and provide these parties with opportunities to take part in open and meaningful consultations.

This consultation will help inform changes to the Passenger Protect Program (commonly referred to as the “no-fly list”), to ensure that Canada's aviation security framework is effective in keeping Canadians safe, while also safeguarding our values in a free and democratic society.
