Nav Canada

Nav Canada owns and operates Canada's civil air navigation service (ANS), coordinating the safe and efficient movement of aircraft in Canadian domestic airspace and international airspace assigned to Canadian control.  This includes air traffic control, flight information, weather briefings, aeronautical information, airport advisory services, and electronic aids to navigation.

Nav Canada’s legacy dates back more than 70 years, starting in 1939 with a single Air Traffic Controller at a control tower in Saint-Hubert, Quebec.  The Air Navigation Service has evolved significantly since those early days, but its core mandate has never changed: moving aircraft safely, efficiently and cost-effectively.

Today, with over 5000 employees. Nav Canada facilities include seven area control centres and 41 control towers, 58 flight service stations and eight flight information centres. These facilities are supported by a network of over 1,000 ground-based aids to navigation located across the country.
