Ask the Councillor: What are the rules on drones?

Region PhotoResident D.Z. asks:

Are there any rules governing the use of drones within city limits?


Drones fall under federal regulation. Rules are applied based on recreational or business use, as well as the weight of the drone. See this link for more information – Drone Guidelines

Concerns about the safe operation of drones should be report to Transport Canada at

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
