Edmonton’s getting a drone port!

We may not have flying pizza delivery robots in Canada yet, but the commercial drone industry is no joke — and we’re at the forefront of it.

Drone Delivery Canada Corp., which in June signed a partnership agreement with Air Canada, announced today that it is officially moving forward with the establishment of “the world’s first airport drone delivery hub” at Edmonton International Airport.

The Vaughan, ON-based tech company intends to use its “proprietary drone delivery platform” to move products to and from the airport using specific takeoff and landing zones designated for drones.
