The Honourable Marc Garneau, C.C., CD, Ph.D., F.C.A.S.I., PC
Minister of Transport
House of Commons
Please accept my heartfelt congratulations on your recent electoral success and appointment to the Privy Council.
As Canada’s national non-profit association representing public and private innovation in unmanned vehicle systems, we are privileged to have an excellent working relationship with Transport Canada. In particular, the dramatic growth of the Canadian Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) sector in Canada has been a direct result of the close collaborative efforts of a decade of work with Transport Canada. We co-chair the working group developing UAS regulations which are planned to move to the legislative agenda in the New Year. We look forward to building on our fruitful relationship under your leadership and oversight to sustain the momentum in this rapidly growing economic sector.
Minister, please accept my best wishes to you, your staff, and family.
