The Canadian government seems to hold little interest in tracking unidentified flying objects, documents gathered under the Access to Information Act showed.
The documents, which were acquired by CBC News, suggest that the efforts of various federal agencies in the country including the RCMNP, Transport Canada and the Department of National Defence in investigating UFO sightings have now ceased, noting that civilian volunteers may or may not report such sightings in the sky.
Civilian science writer Chris Rutkowski is now tasked to examine any information on UFO sightings that these agencies are receiving from reporting witnesses.
According to Rutkowski, who has produced the Canadian UFO survey since 1989, Canada is seen with increasing number of UFO sightings, more several unexplained videos spreading on the internet.
Rutkowski, together with other ufology experts, believes that the government will shift its focus back to UFO phenomenon once the number keeps on rising.
He will be responsible for ensuring that all reported unknown flying objects are not explainable. He received a total of 980 UFO sightings across the country in 2011 and expected a much higher number of sightings in 2012.
The records of UFO sightings are from several people who have dedicated their lives to observing and studying UFO phenomenon.
