NOTE

The attached tariff applies to air carriers operating a domestic service with aircraft with 30 or more passenger seats. With the exception of the provisions in this tariff identified with the (•) symbol referring to the regulatory provisions of the Air Transportation Regulations, as amended (hereinafter the ATR), the attached domestic air tariff is intended to serve as a guide.

For more detailed information you should consult the Canada Transportation Act, as amended (hereinafter the CTA), and the ATR. These documents are available on the Agency's internet site at: http://www.otc-cta.gc.ca.

Should you have any questions concerning the adequacy of your company's tariff, you may wish to refer the matter to your own legal counsel or communicate directly with Agency's staff for technical assistance.

In order to help carriers complete their tariff document as accurately as possible, information notes have been inserted in red text in the sample tariff for the carrier's reference and direction only.  Please ensure that these notes are deleted from the document when it is finalized.

CONTENT OF TARIFF

Every tariff should include a tariff number, title page, index, definitions, issue date, effective date, name of issuing party and consecutive page numbers. Further, as identified in subparagraph 107(1)(n) of the Air Transportation Regulations (ATR), it should also clearly state the air carrier's policy in respect of, at least, the following matters:

  • acceptance of children
  • carriage of persons with disabilities
  • compensation for denial of boarding as a result of overbooking
  • exclusions from liability respecting passengers and goods
  • failure to operate the service or failure to operate on schedule
  • passenger re-routing
  • limits of liability respecting passengers and goods
  • method of calculation of charges not specifically set out in the tariff
  • refunds for services purchased but not used, whether in whole or in part, either as a result of the client's unwillingness or inability to continue or the air carrier's inability to provide the service for any reason
  • procedures to be followed, and time limitations, respecting claims
  • refusal to transport passengers or goods
  • ticket reservation, cancellation, confirmation, validity and loss

NOTE: Other provisions pertaining to tariffs are included in both the Canada Transportation Act (CTA) and the Air Transportation Regulations.

REQUIREMENTS

In accordance with the provisions of the CTA, the holder of a domestic licence shall:

Display: in a prominent place at the business offices of the licensee a sign indicating that the tariffs for the domestic service offered by the licensee, including the terms and conditions of carriage, are available for public inspection at the business offices of the licensee, and allow the public to make such inspections.

Apply: any fare, rate, charge or term or condition of carriage applicable to the domestic service it offers which is set out in a tariff that has been published or displayed and is in effect.

Publish: the terms and conditions of carriage on any Internet site used by the licensee for selling the domestic service offered by the licensee.

Retain: a record of its tariffs for a period of not less than three years after the tariff has ceased to have effect.

PURPOSE OF A TARIFF

The term "Tariff" is defined in the CTA as:

"A schedule of fares, rates, charges and terms and conditions of carriage applicable to the provision of an air service and other incidental services".

Tariffs should be outline the terms and conditions under which the carrier operates its business as it relates to the transportation of passengers, publication/baggage or goods. Although most carriers will have similar tariffs, each carrier should ensure that its tariff is applicable to and meets the needs of its own operation and is in accordance with the provisions of the CTA and the ATR.

The purpose of a tariff is to protect both the carrier and the consumer against unexpected demands or conditions imposed upon it by the other party due to misunderstanding. It functions as the contract of carriage between the passenger and the carrier.

SAMPLE TARIFF

The attached tariff is intended as a sample only and applies to domestic services only. Each carrier should carefully analyse its own operation and create a tariff that is applicable to its own type of business.

The tariff may be edited as often as necessary; however, new pages should be given the same number as the original and should indicate that the page is an amendment to the original page number.
