Diabetic supplies and equipment such as syringes, insulin auto-injectors, jet injectors, and pumps are permitted. Syringes must be for personal medical use, and the needle guard must be in place. The person must possess medication that is to be administered by means of the syringe or needle and biojectors.
Liquid medications (e.g. insulin) are exempted from the liquid restrictions (including gel or ice packs to refrigerate the medication) and can be carried in carry-on baggage in volumes larger than 100 ml (3.4 oz.). Juice and gel for passengers who indicate a need for such items to address a diabetic condition are also permitted. Any liquids, juice or gels must be declared to the Screening Officer separately.
To facilitate screening, CATSA recommends that the medication be properly labelled (professionally printed label identifying the medication or a manufacturer’s name or pharmaceutical label).
