Specified Persons Advisory Group
The Specified Persons Advisory Group identifies individuals who may pose a threat to aviation security and, where appropriate, recommends to the Minister of Public Safety, or his/her delegate, that they be specified. Similarly, the Advisory Group can also recommend whether an individual should no longer be specified.
The Advisory Group is chaired by Public Safety Canada and comprised of federal departments and agencies including Transport Canada, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canada Border Services Agency and Justice Canada.
The Minister of Public Safety, or his/her delegate, determines whether individuals should be specified under the Passenger Protect Program at least every 30 days, when there are reasonable grounds to suspect that they pose a threat to aviation security.
