Removing Kids from Canada's 'No Fly List'


Currently, Canadian travel and security regulations result in false-positives and unnecessary secondary screening for people whose names match those on Canada’s “No Fly List” (also known as the Passenger Protect Program).

No child should grow up feeling like they don’t belong.The United States has a redress system to address problems like this and ensure children and other innocent Canadians don’t get trapped on the list because of mistaken identity. This issue has affected many Canadians, but both Conservative and Liberal governments have not acted to address these issues. Canada can do better.

That’s why as Leader of the NDP and Prime Minister, Jagmeet will introduce legislation to:

  • Immediately remove all children from Canada’s “No Fly List”

  • Ensure that these lists are created and maintained with sensible, unique identifiers like a date of birth and passport information.

  • Create an official redress system for all Canadians,  so that people dealing with mistaken identity can be removed from these lists and go back to living their lives.
