Airport Critical Infrastructure Program
The Airport Critical Infrastructure Program (ACIP) is a new contribution funding program to help Canada’s larger airports make critical investments in safety, security or connectivity to mass transit.
With $489.6 million available over five years, the Program will help eligible airports mitigate the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as part of the Government of Canada’s strategy to ensure that Canada’s air transportation system provides Canadians with choice, connectivity and affordable air travel.
Canada’s world-leading network of airports has been put under substantial financial strain as a result of the dramatic decline in passenger travel resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Infrastructure projects, including those at airports, are generally long horizon investments with years of planning beforehand and many years of benefits thereafter.
Funding may be provided to owners and/or operators of the following types of airports:
National Airport System (NAS) airports with annual passenger volumes of over 525,000 passengers (as of December 2019)
Non-NAS Airports with annual passenger volumes of over 525,000 passengers (as of December 2019)
Eligible projects include:
Safety-related projects (e.g., runway and lighting rehabilitation)
Infrastructure projects for the purposes of operational efficiency and/or to enhance security at airports
Improvements to mass transit connections at airports
