Yes however they have same restrictions as others for number of persons etc in a building. So
Inspectors and others are working from home, call your POI cell number if you are a commercial operator or flight school and keep using the email addresses for sending stuff in.

If you're looking to write a test you're SOL. I know a few guys that can't write their INRATs because TC isn't doing examinations.

You did not think it was worth following up on that email? Could not have been a very important email?

Is there even a transport office anywhere you can just walk into? The one in YYJ has been closed for a long time, they are there, you just can't go in without an appointment.

Very few because they removed the admin / reception positions at many of the TCCs.

Which is too bad because a lot of the time those people were the ones who knew how to get sh*t done.

2 months ago, i sent in an application and a cheque for the fee.

1 month ago I received a government envelope containing a carbon copy, handwritten receipt for the cheque and absolutely nothing else.

Was the application accepted? rejected? Who knows, probably won't know until i renew again.

You'll only be able to cough on the entrance door, being that one cannot simply walk into a TC office anymore.

I know Abbotsford you could walk into, and they used to have a phone number that was actually answered by a person! :shock:

As far as I'm aware, most, if not all offices have been appointment only for some time now. So, doors locked or keycard access only.

Ive been trying for a few weeks now to get ahold of someone to give me back the $50 I paid for a medical extension, just before they gave it to everyone. I'm starting to consider going through visa.
