Canadians, tourists and businesses benefit from safe and well-maintained airports. From visiting friends and family, to traveling to medical appointments, or getting goods to market, we rely on our local airports to support and sustain vibrant communities. These airports also provide essential air services including community resupply, air ambulance, search and rescue and forest fire response.

The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, today announced a $4,209,725 investment for the rehabilitation of the taxiways and apron at the Chisasibi Airport.

The funding comes from Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program (ACAP). Since the Program’s launch in 1995, the Government of Canada has invested more than $829.4 million for 927 projects at 185 airports across the country.
