FEE-SETTING IN CANADIAN DOMESTIC AIR NAVIGATION SERVICES

Canada commercialized its air navigation system (ANS) in November 1996. Transport Canada (TC) personnel and equipment were transferred to a nonshare corporation called NAV CANADA, governed by a board of directors. TC retained a purely regulatory role, ensuring that safety standards were maintained. NAV CANADA is expected to cover its costs by a fee structure that replaces the Air Transportation Tax. While a number of constrains were imposed, the corporation was still required to act within the norms of international practice. This paper concerns the consultation process, the safeguards affected, and the early issues in implementing the fee structure in the commercialized ANS.
