Prior to submitting the completed forms at the Pass Control Office, you must successfully complete all three modules of the Canadian Airports Security Awareness Program (CASAP). The training can be accessed here: https://hiaa.sabacloud.com/

Follow the instructions to sign up (register) for the training. The training does not have to be completed in one session. Once you have registered, you can sign in as many times as you wish to complete all three modules (remember the password you registered with).

The first time you sign-up (register) you will need the ‘security keyword’ which you can get from your employer.

1. Restricted Area Identification Card

Use the RAIC Application Checklist when applying for a RAIC.

Print the following Application Form, fill it out and have it approved by your company’s authorized signing authority.

Appointments for the Pass Control Office can be scheduled online. There is also the option to attend as a walk-in (which may involve an extended wait).

Prior to attending Pass Control, it is essential that you know the following:

  • Ensure a signing authority for your company has reviewed your TSC and/or RAIC application in detail to ensure it is complete, free of errors, and that you are in possession of all the required supporting documentation. Failing to do this will result in your application not being accepted by the Pass Control Office, and you will need to attend on another date/time when the application and/or supporting documentation is correct for submission to Transport Canada and HIAA.
  • It is not the role of the Pass Control Office to help you complete your TSC or RAIC application. The responsibility for this lies with the signing authority for your company.

You must have read and understood all the sections above:
