Nav Canada will restore regular nighttime air navigation services at five locations in Atlantic Canada, beginning Aug. 18, 2020. This decision was made after considering both the regional public health environment and operational requirements.

In May 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic Nav Canada temporarily suspended overnight air navigation services at 18 facilities​, including air traffic control towers, flight service stations and locations which receive remote airport aerodrome advisory service. These measures reduced the exposure of Nav Canada’s essential employees to the coronavirus, while ensuring that critical air navigation services remained available when they were most needed.


Nav Canada remains fully committed to safeguarding the health of its employees and the resiliency of its services. The company will remain vigilant and regularly reassess the COVID-19 situation.
