New Investments in Local Airports


Today, the Government of Canada announced new investments in local and regional airports across Canada through the Airports Capital Assistance Program. This latest round of investment includes $41.7M for capital investments and upgrades at 34 airports.

These upgrades range from upgrading or replacing snow removal equipment, improving airfield lighting, rehabilitation of pavement for aircraft maneuvering surfaces, to purchasing or modernizing RCR and other airfield surveillance equipment.

COPA applauds the government for these investments that are helping to sustain Canada’s local and regional airports as valuable community assets that contribute to trade, tourism, and the economy overall.
