Security Screening Wait Times

CATSA encourages all passengers to arrive at their departing airport well in advance of their flight. Many airlines advise passengers to arrive two hours in advance for domestic flights and three hours in advance for US and international flights.

Proactive Disclosure

The Government of Canada has implemented a series of measures to strengthen public sector management by enhancing transparency and oversight of public resources in the federal government.

One of these measures includes the proactive disclosure of financial and human resources-related information by departments and agencies. By making this information readily available, Canadians and Parliament are better able to hold the Government and public sector officials to account.

Travel and hospitality expenditures adhere to CATSA’s Travel, Hospitality, Conference and Event Expenditures Policy.

Since April 30, 2018, CATSA's Proactive Disclosure is reported on the Government of Canada's Open Government website.


Other measures, which are the responsibility of CATSA's Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Office, include the posting of Completed Access to Information Requests and Info Source: Sources of Federal Government and Employee Information.
