Ottawa, Ontario: The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, said, “Air disasters have claimed the lives of far too many Canadians." He was giving a statement on the third National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Air Disasters.

He said, “Canada is a world leader in safety and security in civil aviation. The Government of Canada is working to ensure the safety and security of air travel worldwide by collaborating with partners to prevent further tragic losses of life. 

According to his statement, with Canada's international partners, they are taking concrete action to ensure Iran is held accountable for its egregious and unlawful downing of Flight PS752. Canada is also demonstrating strong leadership on the Safer Skies Initiative, alongside international partners, to ensure the safety of civilian aircraft travelling in or near conflict zones. 

He will support to advocate for the International Civil Aviation Organization to review its aircraft accident investigation framework, to enhance the transparency and credibility of investigations.

He vowed to continue to support the families and loved ones of the victims of tragic air disasters. In summer 2022, the government launched a pathway to permanent residence for family members of victims of Flight ET302 and Flight PS752 who are outside Canada and who have close ties to surviving family members in Canada. We are working to provide 176 scholarships, averaging $25,000 each, in memory of the victims of Flight PS752. 

Canada has also established the Commemoration Fund for the Victims of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 Tragedy, which includes scholarships and support for commemorative projects that pay tribute to the victims.

“As we honor the victims of air disasters, we stand with families, friends, and all those who have lost loved ones to these tragedies. We will always remember them.”

He remembered the victims of all air disasters, including Air Ontario Flight 1363, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 (Flight ET302), Air India Flight 182, and Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 (Flight PS752).
