• Community Relations

    Toronto Pearson is Canada’s front door, an important economic enabler for our region, and a neighbour to the communities that surround us. Perhaps more than any other service or business, an airport is a reflection of the community that surrounds it; if the community is thriving, so too is the airport. Toronto Pearson is growing because our communities are thriving.

  • A Quieter Operations Roadmap: Six Ideas to reduce noise impacts for our neighbours

    Community Consultation

    As Canada’s busiest airport, Toronto Pearson understands its operations and growth have an impact on surrounding communities.

    In June 2015, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and NAV CANADA began a conversation to explore noise mitigation ideas with communities across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

    Feedback provided by you and your neighbours across the GTA helped us better identify noise reduction opportunities in residential areas. These conversations led to the creation of the Toronto Noise Mitigation Initiatives Engagement Plan, commonly known as the Six Ideas.

    Growing Responsibly: Our Commitment To Our Neighbours

    Toronto Pearson International Airport is Canada's busiest airport. Each year, the number of passengers travelling through the airport increases, placing greater demand on our infrastructure and operations.

    The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) understands that the increasing demand for air travel presents benefits and challenges for communities surrounding the airport. In recognition of this, the GTAA has been consulting and engaging with surrounding communities to collect feedback on how to grow responsibly.

    Using inputs from the Best Practices Report, Residents’ Reference Panel recommendations, open houses and community events, the GTAA has updated its five-year Noise Management Action Plan. The Plan was released on December 6, 2017 at the public CENAC meeting.

    The GTAA is committed to continuous consultation with neighbouring communities on noise management related practices and initiatives, including the Toronto Noise Management Initiative Six Ideas.
