Transport Canada expands Prohibited Items List

Transport Canada is amending its Prohibited Items List for passengers on all domestic and international flights.

Effective November 27, 2017, certain powders and granular material with a volume of 350 ml (the size of a soda can) or more will be prohibited at all screening checkpoints in Canada.

Prohibited material includes items such as bath salts, sea salt, baby powder, foot powder, cooking powder and sand. Items such as baby formula, protein powder, tea and coffee will still be permitted in any quantity.

Consistent with international practice, Transport Canada will also amend the list so that very small knife blades (6 cm or less—about the size of a large paper clip) will not be prohibited on domestic or international flights.

Knife blades of any length will remain prohibited on flights to the United States through preclearance facilities. Razor blades and box cutters of any size will remain prohibited at all screening checkpoints.
