Bird Strike Association of Canada

Bird Strike Association of Canada, steering committee members, Gary Searing, Tim Nohara and Pierre Molina, meet with Parliamentary Secretary for Transport, Ms Karen McCrimmon, MP Kanata-Carlton, to present our BSAC discussion paper “Rediscovering Leadership by Advancing Safety at Canada’s Airports”. The paper proposes a number of regulatory changes to the Canadian Aviation Regulations. 

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) 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. Birdstrike  Canada is “The Canadian Voice of Wildlife Strike Prevention.”

The Bird Strike Association of 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).
