Airport improvements

The improvements will aid aircraft taking off in reduced visibility

Council is moving forward with a project that will bring the airport field electrical systems into full compliance with Canadian Aviation regulations.

The improvements will also aid aircraft taking off in reduced visibility.

The airport has met the eligibility criteria to receive 95 per cent, or $1.3 million, from the Transport Canada Airport Capital Assistance program. The overall cost of the project is $1.4 million. The city’s portion will come from the Airport Improvement Fund and is included in the 2013-2017 financial plan.
