Canadian ESA Law

The Canadian Transportation Agency ensures everyone enjoys the same access to travel, especially by airplane if traveling with a service or support animal. Every Canadian-based airline must follow the Code of Practice Aircraft Accessibility for Persons with Disabilities (Air Code) and the Air Transportation Regulations (ATR) for persons with any disability traveling with service or support animal.

When traveling outside of Canada, please make sure to maintain the proper travel documents for your service dog or emotional support animal by following these guidelines.

Canadian Housing Laws

Accessibility laws across Canada differ from province to province, and in many cases are antiquated, poorly defined, and do not take into account the various needs of individuals with disabilities being supported by service and support animals.
