Original language of petition: English
NAV Canada is a private, arm’s length corporation, mandated to manage Canada’s air navigation services. The Minister cannot unilaterally stop the NAV Canada Corporation from conducting a level of service review without contravening the Civil Air Navigation Services Commercialization Act (CANSCA) and the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs):
That being said, as safety regulator, Transport Canada will not permit any changes that would introduce unnecessary safety risk into the system.
Before undertaking any action, NAV Canada would have to submit aeronautical studies to Transport Canada to identify the risks to aviation safety and how to eliminate or reduce those risks. The role of the Minister pertaining to the review of service by NAV Canada is toward safety, and to ensure that any proposed changes will not increase unnecessary risk to aviation safety.
