Rules for recreational drones
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.
Fly your drone:
below 90 metres (300 feet) above the ground
at least 30 metres (100 feet) away from vehicles, vessels and the public (if your drone weighs over 250 grams and up to 1 kilograms)
at least 76 metres (250 feet) away from vehicles, vessels and the public (if your drone weighs over 1 kilograms and up to 35 kilograms)
at least 5.6 kilometres (3 nautical miles) away from aerodromes (any airport, seaplane base or area where aircraft take off and land)
at least 1.9 kilometres (1 nautical mile) away from heliports or aerodromes used by helicopters only outside of controlled or restricted airspace

away from areas where its use could interfere with police or first responders

follow the rules in the Canadian Aviation Regulations:
section 602.41 – Unmanned air vehicles
respect the Criminal Code, your provincial Trespass Act, and all municipal, provincial and territorial laws that apply Transport Canada inspectors investigate reports of unsafe and illegal drone use and may involve local police if other laws (for example, the Criminal Code and privacy laws) have been broken.
You could face serious penalties, including up to $25,000 in fines and/or jail time, if you:
put aircraft at risk
fly where you are not allowed
endanger anyone’s safety
For example:
If you fly your drone recreationally where you are not allowed, or break any of the rules in the Interim Order Respecting the Use of Model Aircraft, you may be fined up to $3,000
If you fly a drone without a certificate and should have one, we may fine up to $5,000 for a person and $25,000 for a corporation
