Incident at 50NM PITT MEADOWS BC (CYPK)

A 2791455 Canada Inc. Lake LA-4-200 (C-FBOQ) from Pitt Meadows, BC (CYPK) to Calgary, AB (CYYC) departed VFR. C-FBOQ was not on a VFR flight plan. At 2310Z, when approximately 50NM East of CYPK, the aircraft ascended above 12,500 feet. When queried by the Kamloops controller, the pilot advised needing to climb to avoid a cloud. The controller advised that the aircraft could not climb above 12500 feet unless it was CVFR. When cleared CVFR to 15000ft, the pilot climbed to 15500ft, without clearance, to avoid a cloud. The controller subsequently provided clearance to 17000ft, however, the pilot started a descent without clearance to avoid a cloud. The controller vectored another aircraft to ensure separation. The CVFR flight plan generated an IFR Canadian Automated Air Traffic System (CAATS) flight plan for the aircrafts new destination of Lethbridge, AB (CYQL). An Edmonton Air Traffic Operations Specialist (ATOS) initiated a Communications Search when C-FBOQ became overdue at CYQL. C-FBOQ subsequently contacted the Edmonton Centre for flight following.
