Sounds like another fun adventure and a good study for an approach.  Isnít it great to have the new technology as a cross check to blindly following two needles?

The current Jeppesen chart has what I posted. The Nav Canada chart I have access to says the same thing.

There is a NOTAM in effect which might be reflected on those charts:

CYCG AD CHART: DEP PROC NOT AUTH
             1904112023 TIL APRX 1907091700

I honestly wasn't that clear on what that NOTAM means-- does it mean you can't depart IFR at all? The Jazz Dash 8s were departing IFR, for whatever that's worth. But they may have a special departure procedure or something.

I believe that means the departure procedure on the Aerodrome chart is not authorized from 4/11/19 2023z until 7/09/19 1700z

The jazz Dash 8s probably had tailored charts and procedures.

I agree with that... so the question is, what do you do to depart there?

Flying IFR part 91 gives you a lot of freedom to kill yourself.  I think as long as you have a clearance you can takeoff .

You would be responsible for your own terrain clearance and ATC would protect the airspace.

The best way to depart would be to circle the airport until you reach the MSA of 10,300ft then go direct to a waypoint or vor.

I would want to have synthetic vision to do that, but that is a personal minimum. 

Honestly I think I would head back to the hotel. :)

I have to say, Castlegar really does show off the synthetic vision!
