About 125 nm west of CYQM, C-FZJA climbed through their cleared level of FL320. A loss of separation occurred with a military aircraft at FL330 and 1 mile west of C-FZJA. The military aircraft was instructed to alter its heading 20 degrees due to the traffic conflict. C-FZJA was at FL328 when queried by ATS, and confirmed that they were cleared to FL320, and descended to FL320.
2017-09-20: A Jazz Bombardier CL-600-2B19 (CRJ-200) (C-FZJA/ CJZA903) from Greater Moncton Intl, NB (CYQM) to Montreal, QC (CYUL) climbed above the cleared level of FL320. JZA8903 was below a United States Navy Boeing 737-800 (PELCN03) from Portsmouth, NH (KPSM) to Reykjavik, Iceland (BIKF), and was 1 mile west when JZA8903 continued to climb to FL328. PELCN03 was at FL330 at the time of the altitude breach. PELCN03 was instructed to turn left 20 degrees for traffic. JZA8903 had already been handed off to KZBW at FL312 climbing to FL320. When JZA8903 deviated from their cleared altitude the KZBW controller queried the JZA8903 who confirmed they had only been cleared to FL320 and were now descending to FL320.
