Flying drone

Know when and where you can fly your drone

To protect public safety and privacy, there are important restrictions you need to know about when flying a drone for personal or commercial purposes. The City of Saskatoon has a bylaw in place regulating the take-off, landing or operation of a drone in outdoor public places. Transport Canada has restrictions in place for operating these devices safely and legally to keep airspace users, the public and private property safe, including the need to obtain permission from landowners (which may include the City of Saskatoon) before flying your drone. Visit www.tc.gc.ca/SafetyFirst to learn more.
