Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra on October 21 announced that the Government of Canada is making important safety investments at Red Lake Municipal Airport in Ontario.

Through Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program (ACAP), the government will provide the airport with more than $900,000 for safety-related projects and equipment.

These safety investments include purchasing a loader and grader for use in the removal of ice and snow from airside surfaces; replacing wind direction indicators; installing apron lighting for the aircraft de-icing facility; and rehabilitating the constant current regulators on the taxiways and apron.

” This investment in the Red Lake Municipal Airport will ensure residents in Red Lake continue to have access to safe and reliable air transportation options,” said Alghabra. “Through investments like these, we are building healthier, stronger communities for the residents of Red Lake and across the country.”

Since the Airports Capital Assistance Program started in 1995, the Government of Canada has invested over $1.2 billion for 1,215 projects at 199 local, regional and National Airports System airports across the country.
