Canada Launches Redress System for Secure Air Travel Act list – “Canadian Travel Number”

From: Public Safety Canada

Ottawa, Ontario

The Government of Canada is committed to keeping Canadians safe while protecting their rights and freedoms.

Today, the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, the Honourable Bill Blair, announced the launch of the Canadian Travel Number (CTN).

Those who have the same, or similar, name as someone on the Secure Air Travel Act (SATA) list (commonly referred to as Canada’s ‘no fly list’) sometimes face delays at the airport because they are falsely flagged by it.

The CTN is a unique number that travellers can apply for, and when used during flight booking, may reduce the potential for delays later at airport check in.
