In light of the evolving coronavirus situation, CATSA’s priority remains the well-being of its screening officers and those working in and travelling through Canadian airports. In response, we have made some changes at the checkpoint.
At airport security checkpoints across the country, security screening of passengers and their belongings is conducted by CATSA’s screening officers prior to their entry into the secure area of an airport.
Screening officers use a variety of screening technologies and procedures to prevent passengers from carrying prohibited items beyond the screening checkpoint.
