If you are travelling by plane from and within Canada, you are required to bring your own face covering. In light of the evolving situation with COVID-19, all passengers and non-passengers must wear a face covering and place it over their mouth and nose before entering the screening checkpoint. Take note: As of September 23, in addition to temperature screening occurring at Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal airports, 11 more have been added to the list. If you are also travelling from St. John’s, Halifax, Québec City, Ottawa, Toronto-Billy Bishop, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Kelowna or Victoria. Here’s some other changes we’ve made at the checkpoint.
2018 Annual Report
Did you know that last year CATSA screened a record 66.3 million passengers, but nonetheless exceeded our annual average wait time service level target? You can find this and more info in our 2018 Annual Report (PDF).
CATSA’s Annual Report summarizes our activities over the previous fiscal year in relation to our four mandated activities: Pre-Board Screening, Hold Baggage Screening, Non-Passenger Screening, and Restricted Area Identity Card programs.
Among the other highlights from this year’s report:
- CATSA implemented an enhanced Customer Service Commitment to passengers, which focuses on ensuring customer-service excellence at all points of contact with travellers.
- CATSA participated in a variety of outreach initiatives, including engaging with Indigenous Elders and participating in events targeted towards assisting travellers with autism.
- Last year, the Government of Canada launched a review of CATSA’s governance model, and CATSA has worked closely with the government and stakeholders to evaluate the various options being considered.
