For those who may not have received this. DJI has communicated the following...
Dear DJI partners,
In January of this year, Transport Canada issued Advisory Circular AC 922-001 regarding remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) intended for Advanced Operations. Many of you have reached out to us for greater insight into our intended compliance path, and we appreciate your patience as we have worked through this process.
DJI is pleased to declare that, effective today, nine of our drone models comply with the latest Transport Canada regulations for advanced drone operations in controlled airspace. This allows DJI customers to continue using preferred drones in these operations after June 1, when Transport Canada’s new regulatory framework for civilian drone operations takes effect across Canada. DJI’s compliant drones are:
• M600 Series
• M200 Series
• M200 V2 Series
• Inspire 2
• Mavic 2 series
• Mavic Pro
• Mavic Air
• Phantom 4 series
• Spark
DJI continues to review the process of declaring its drones compliant for other Advanced Operations under Transport Canada’s safety assurance program. These elements of the program have different steps and requirements, and further information will be announced at a later date.
Thanks and best regards

The regulation doesn't go into effect until June 1st. It appears the manufacturer only needs to submit a statement to Transportation Canada that their models meets the requirement. For the most part, this relates to flying over people. Models which are not on the list can still be used with that exception. The current list contains just 33 models, none of which are DJI. Because the list is not up to date we have no idea what other models have been submitted. It's interesting to note that DJI's list does not include the Inspire 1, nor the P3.

They say they are fully aware of the regulations, and I have been sending them all the releases from Transport Canada as they are released, the one manufacturers need to follow is "Standard 922"
Here is one of many replies I have received back from my emails to Mike....15043
