lrh111 - I'm in southern Alberta. We both fall in the PNR (Prairie and Northern Region) jurisdiction of Transport Canada.
I've received the attached from Transport Canada as guides for completing and SFOC with the best chance of flowing through the system without any delays. Hopefully this helps out any other Canadians wishing to use their whirlybirds for safe and profitable ventures...and maybe help out our fellows to the south as well once the FAA stops getting in its own way...

I had a bit of a tough time finding someone as well, but Jessica was excellent to deal with. Quick and responsive. I'm probably getting hosed...but the industry is still so new...

. They are a dedicated UAV school in Medicine Hat. I was going to attend in January, but unfortunately the instructer had a family emergency and they had to rebook. I decided to take a mini-vacation and flew out to Victoria instead and did a slightly longer course put on by David Carlos of Victoria Air Photos. http://www.victoriaairphotos.com/
I know that there is at least one school in Dorval, Quebec...but I wasn't about to go out there for it...lol.
I am now fully certified, insured, and have my ROC-A. All I need is to have the time to start sourcing work with a customer that doens't mind waiting over a month to get the work done.
