Taking Off: Drone Law in Canada
What You Need to Know to (Legally) Operate a Drone
Did you know that people operating drones are considered pilots of aircraft? Or that the Canadian drone market is estimated to be worth between $100-$260 million by 2024? How about the fact that more than 300 Canadian companies fall within the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle sector?
There has been a significant increase in the commercial and recreational use of drones. Yet, many are unclear on what is permitted under current laws and regulations.
Join Field Law as our Emerging Technologies Group presents an overview of the legal landscape surrounding drone use and discusses what you need to know to use drones in your businesses. The seminar will cover topics including:    
  • Discussion on current federal, provincial and municipal bodies that regulate the use of drones and how these regulations affect your business
  • Potential privacy, contract and insurance issues 
  • Drone related liability
  • Patent/intellectual property protection
