Collaborative Flight Planning Services
NOTAMs and most weather tools are available through Collaborative Flight Planning ServicesOpen a new window. They can be found on the “Weather and NOTAM” tab which does not require a login.
As of October 10, 2019, all NOTAMs 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 changesOpen a new window presentation.
Aviation Weather Web Site
You can use the Aviation Weather Web SiteOpen a new window 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.
For updates which may impact flight safety, refer to AIP Supplements and AICs on the AIP Canada page.
Additionally, for information on changes to the air navigation system, refer to our Service Notices.
Sign up for our Aeronautical and Service Updates email newsletter to help you stay up-to-date on new AIP Supplements, AICs and Service Notices.

Alternatively, flight plans can be filed by calling the applicable flight information centre.
