(MISSISSAUGA FIRST NATION, ON) – The Mississauga First Nation Police Service and the East Algoma Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are reminding anyone operating an Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV) that it is his or her responsibility for flying your UAV safely and legally.
More and more people are using UAV’s for work or pleasure. Transport Canada regulates their use to keep the public and airspace safe.
In Canada, you must follow the rules set out in the Canadian Aviation Regulations and respect the Criminal Code as well as all municipal, provincial, and territorial laws related to trespassing and privacy.
Before you fly your UAV, make sure you understand the rules that apply and follow them. Not doing so could put lives at risk and cost you up to $25,000 in fines.
Mississauga First Nation Police Service and the OPP are asking UAV operators to respect the privacy of others. OPP Inspector Yves Forget reminds UAV operators to avoid flying over private property or taking photos or videos without permission.
Mississauga First Nation Police Service and the East Algoma Ontario Provincial Police are committed to ensuring the safety and security of the communities it serves.
