International Airport Review 

Toronto Pearson International Airport is to receive funding from the Government of Canada to help with COVID-19 pandemic recovery and to maintain safety, security, and connectivity for all.

The Minister Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced new funding to help Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and to support continued air services and important transportation infrastructure projects at the airport.

The airport will receive more than $142 million from Transport Canada’s Airport Critical Infrastructure Programme to:

  • Rehabilitate airfield pavement
  • Develop and install new check-in, boarding, and border clearance systems
  • Enable COVID-19 testing and screening of passengers and employees, and
  • Carry out technical studies and concept design work for a proposed connection between the airport and the future extension of the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit line.

These Investments will help the airport maintain safety, security, and connectivity for travellers, airport workers and residents of the Greater Toronto Area and its surrounding communities.
