A privately registered, amateur-built Vans RV 7A on a flight from Victoria, BC (CYYJ) was climbing on a tight crosswind, and narrowly avoided a collision with C-GTDK due to both aircraft performing avoidance manoeuvres. Air Traffic Control (ATC) verified that C-GTDK had its strobes and navigation lights on. ATC also confirmed with the Vans RV 7A, to which they replied "they are now". C-GTDK then made a full stop landing and expedited their runway exit at the request of ATC, due to the proximity of the Vans RV 7A on final for a touch-and-go.
