  • The Federal Aeronautics Power in Canada (2022)
    This Primer (updated and expanded from a similar article published in 2018) is intended to assist the reader in understanding what is meant by the exclusive federal jurisdiction over aeronautics, its extent and limits, and review cases where provincial/municipal officials have (or have not) been found to have encroached in terms of impermissibly attempting to regulate aeronautical activities.
  • Canadian Community Airports Profile (2022)
    This report was commissioned by COPA to offer its members tools to share with elected officials and decision-makers across Canada. This study has been developed to serve as a comprehensive body of information on the economic and social impacts of community airports, their challenges, and to provide case studies of real-world success with best practices that can be adopted by other airport operators.
