Temporary airport pass

There are two types of temporary airport passes: one requires the search of the person at each entry point into the restricted area, and the other, the obligation of the person to be escorted at all times by a RAIC holder.  The type of temporary pass granted will depend on the occupation of the applicant. 

A temporary pass with photo will be issued to a person who:

1) is awaiting security clearance which will allow him or her, under certain conditions, to enter the restricted area; or
2) will be working at Aéroports de Montréal for a limited time (e.g., under a temporary work contract).  


• Prior to submitting your request at the APO, you must have first completed the online training Security Awareness Program.  The online training is accessible at the following link : www.BAPexam.ca and comprises two modules.

MODULE 1: Canadian Airport Security Awareness Program (CASAP) consists of the "national" module used by all Canadian airports. You will need to anticipate approximately 1h30 to complete this module.

MODULE 2: Security Awareness for Montreal-Trudeau and Montreal-Mirabel represents to "local" module which specifically applies to Aéroports de Montréal. This module will take approximately 35 minutes to complete.

You must bring with you:

  • A copy of both your certificates of achievement (Modules 1 and 2) attesting that you have completed the online training program on Security Awareness

    It is important to note that the Certificate of Achievement obtained for Module 1 should be carefully preserved.

    In fact, since Module 1 is the "national" module of the Security Awareness Program for Canadian airports, this certificate is valid at all Canadian airports.

    For example, in the event that the holder would be transferred to another airport and had to file an application for an airport pass, Module 1 would not need to be taken again, but only the Module 2 of the airport in question.

  • A letter, printed on company letterhead and signed by an authorized signing officer of the company, explaining why you require access to the restricted area, and stating the duration of your contract;

  • The Aéroports de Montréal Request for Airport Pass form

    It is important that the employer or the company signing authority complete ALL fields in Part A of the form. You, the applicant, are responsible for completing Part B. Only the signed original of the form will be accepted.  

  • Proof of Verification of Judicial Record issued by the company duly dated and signed.
