Unacceptable Government of Canada Level of Service for Aviation

Government’s responses to service requests, essential for airlines operations, have slowed to a crawl, resulting in much longer delays than the established aviation service standards or what is an acceptable industry standard considering the fees paid. This trend is unfortunately not limited to Transport Canada but extends to many government departments. Visa applications, RAIC cards, type certifications, medical approvals and license renewals, professional exams, pilot proficiency checks, aircraft certification, etc. are subject to delays never before encountered. These delays are a major factor in the disruption of air service across Canada. » Learn more
