This paper examines aviation security approaches in Canada and the United States. After the 9-11 attacks, several new aviation security measures were introduced by both nations (including legislation and policies) in order to secure the aviation sector from terrorist attacks. The thesis of the paper is that Canada and U.S. promote security and commerce within a multi-layered regime within a federal regulatory framework. Various pieces of legislation and policies are discussed, including the role that federal agencies play in working with other agencies to enhance security on the ground and in the air. Global conventions and the Open Skies policy are also examined.
