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.
Restricted Area Identity Card (RAIC)

The final authority that determines access to the restricted areas of the airport is the airport authority itself.
