Bird Strike Association of Canada

Bird Strike Association of Canada

We believe that the key to reduce damaging wildlife strikes to aircraft in Canada is by building a community of  professionals to exchange ideas, experiences and co-operative efforts to better manage wildlife at all Canadian airports.  It is through the ecological management of wildlife and the application of best practices that we will be successful in reducing strikes to aircraft. In pursuing these beliefs, we influence all aspects of airport wildlife management in Canada.

The Bird Strike Association of Canada (BSAC aka Birdstrike Canada) is a leader in airport wildlife strike prevention. Through dialogue with the industry, the BSAC seeks and advances innovative ideas in aviation safety. Our mandate includes setting standards and addressing industry issues by formulating effective strategies and implementing change through regulatory means. The Bird Strike Association of Canada is “The Canadian Voice of Wildlife Strike Prevention.”

Birdstrike Canada is recognized by Transport Canada as Canada's National Bird Strike Committee organized under the guidelines set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

Announcing the Third Bi-annual Birdstrike Canada Workshop. This year we have expanded the workshop to a week-long event. In addition to the regular 2-day workshop, we are excited to offer a "hands-on" demonstration session of verious techniques and equipment, an airside/groundside tour of Edmonton Airport's wildlife management program followed by a BBQ on Thursday. And to make your trip to the workshop in Edmonton as rewarding and professionally valuable as possible, an additional "training" day has been added. Friday will be devoted to looking at verious approaches to conducting risk assessment and developing Key Performance Indicators. And everyone is welcome to join us on Monday for the Steering Committee meeting where we lay out the direction for Birdstrike Canada for the coming year. Registration is now open
