I'll be visiting Canada in October and I've spent some time looking at various sites - mainly Transport Canada - to find out what's required. Think it's going to be too much hassle to bring my trusty Anafi (registration + pilot certificate + Special Flight Operations Certificate as a Foreign operator) so I'm considering getting a sub-250g drone as the rules are much less onerous.

One thing that is not totally clear (from TC and many other websites) is whether a foreign operator still needs the SFOC for ANY drone. I am hoping not, but the wording is not as clear as it could be.

Can anyone confirm if a SFOC is needed for foreign operators with sub-250g drones?

Many thanks.

Got the answer to this by contacting a Canadian drone training company that were very helpful.

A SFOC is NOT needed for foreign operators with sub-250g drones. Good news, but will need to get a sub-250g drone now!
