In recent years the US government has released several UFO / UAP documents that have been collected for decades. Still that is not enough for UFO enthusiasts as they believe it is just the tip of the iceberg, the real treasure is still hidden.
Like the US, Britain and Canada are also collecting UFO data but most people are frustrated because they haven’t released much in recent years.
Christopher Rutkowski, Canada’s leading ufologist revealed that since 1989 his organization Ufology Research (formerly known as Ufology Research of Manitoba) had collected and analyzed Canadian UFO data. According to a 2017 survey carried out by his organization, around 1,101 sightings were recorded in a year, which averages three sightings per day. It is considered the fifth highest number since data collection began in 1989.

The study indicates that people who witnessed unusual objects in the sky did not provide any explanation. Most of the witnesses are police, pilots and military. A report by VICE World News revealed that the Canadian government, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and NORAD are actively reporting unidentified and identified flying objects. Timothy Sayle, Assistant Professor of History and Director of the International Relations Program, said: “It worries me that there is so much secrecy around this.”
In addition Vice has shared another report which states that the Canadian private company known as Nav Canada which owns and operates civil air navigation systems holds the most convincing UFO data and has no interest in sharing it with the public. Nav Canada provides air traffic services, aeronautical information and air navigation technology. The company runs thousands of flights a day and has stored data shared by professional pilots, including UFO sightings.
“Nav Canada is also in direct communication with the Canadian military, rapidly informing them of sightings of airmen, such as on the night of April 8, 2019.
When it alerted the Air Force after a WestJet flight approaching Regina’ reported a flashing white light moving above 60,000 feet, which is well below most satellites and beyond the range of any Canadian fighter jet.
Nav Canada was formed in 1996 when Canada became the first country to fully privatize its civil air navigation system.
Furthermore, Nav Canda reported another sighting that occurred on December 15, 2009. The report said, “Fort McMurray Tower observed a bright object northwest of the airport at 1450z (local time 0750) on December 15 and the object initially moved towards the south then continued east until it disappeared at sunrise. Its altitude was unknown, but it was well above the horizon. The object moved from northwest to southeast and was in a straight line with no erratic movements. The object was moving very fast and looked very fast to be any commercial aircraft and was a solid bright light. JZA 334 was delayed in departure for about 4 minutes until the object was well east of the aircraft’s departure path. ”
Sean Holman, an associate professor of journalism at Mount Royal University of Alberta and a researcher who focuses on Canada’s freedom of information laws, said: “A lot of times we’ve seen these kinds of situations where the government privatizes something, and then you’re no longer able to to get the records related to that thing. ”
He added that “Nav Canada essentially has discretion over the release of information on this matter. This makes it extraordinarily difficult for anyone seeking a greater understanding of these incidents. ”
Interestingly, Transport Canada collects aviation occurrence information through CADORS (Civil Aviation Daily Occurrence Reporting System), a digital archive that contains nearly 300,000 entries on various incidents such as bird strikes and drunk passengers. CADORS has received over two decades of UFO data from several Canadian airlines.
