Incident at Vicinity of Lac Du Bonnet, Manitoba (ATS operating irregularity)


1997-05-15: BLS 317 was enroute IFR at 8000 feet. C-GMPX was departing IFR from an airport underlying the protected airspace for the airway on which BLS 317 was operating. C-GMPX was cleared to depart direct to destination and to maintain 8000 feet. This clearance placed C-GMPX in conflict with BLS 317 since procedural separation in this area was required and it was not assured. Radar data analysis after the fact revealed that the aircraft came to within 11.58 NM and 4600 feet of each other before radar separation was established.
