Collaborative Flight Planning Services
NOTAMs and most weather tools are available through Collaborative Flight Planning Services. They can be found on the “Weather and NOTAM” tab which does not require a login.
As of October 10, 2019, all NOTAMs except Runway Surface Condition (RSC) are provided in the ICAO NOTAM format and are no longer associated to an aerodrome NOTAM File. For more information on the ICAO NOTAM format, see our ICAO NOTAM reference materials.
Weather and NOTAM provided through CFPS are geographically-referenced, allowing you to search by the geographical area of (and optional radius around) a point of interest such as an aerodrome, NAVAID or FIR. This then returns all Canadian NOTAMs whose radius of influence encompasses your entry, and weather information for all aerodromes within your entry. Note that entering a point of interest such as a NAVAID only effects a search for its geographical location; it is not a means of finding NOTAMs about that NAVAID.
You can also enter a flight route to receive all selected weather information and NOTAMs that geographically intersect that route. For more information on what results such a search will yield, see the Transition to ICAO NOTAM Format – Overview of changes presentation.
Aviation Weather Web Site
You can use the Aviation Weather Web Site to access all aviation weather tools, but not NOTAMs. Unlike data obtained through CFPS, weather information is retrieved for specific aerodrome IDs, not geographic area or route. A small number of weather tools, including live RVR and weather cameras, are currently only accessible through the Aviation Weather Web Site.
VFR and IFR flights plans can be filed, amended, delayed or cancelled using Collaborative Flight Planning Services. The system automatically flags flight plans that do not meet standard parameters, and any changes made by customers or air traffic services are automatically updated on your account as well as on the NAV CANADA system.
Alternatively, flight plans can be filed by calling the applicable flight information centre.
Free reference materials aimed at pilots and the aviation community, including Canadian Airport Charts, phraseology guides, Designated Airspace Handbook and more.
