The pilot of a small passenger plane has died after colliding with another aircraft and crashing into a field near the capital Ottawa, officials said.
Police said the exact circumstances of the accident in Carp, Ontario, around 30 kilometres west of Ottawa, early Sunday remained unknown.
The pilot of the Cessna aircraft, who was flying alone, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The second plane, a turboprop Piper PA-42, was rerouted to Ottawa's international airport, where it landed safely, a Transport Canada spokesperson told AFP, adding that the incident was under investigation.
