• Conversations about our future

    Join us at our Public Workshops in June and July

    Toronto Pearson is an important part of the region and your community. Our airport is growing as an employment zone and now a transit centre. Global demand for air travel is behind our growth.

    We’re launching a series of initiatives this spring and summer to talk about growth and the impact of our operations, so we can ensure that our long-range plan addresses the concerns and priorities of residents.


    Join the conversation

    You can join the conversation by attending one of the upcoming Public Workshops, and by completing our Survey on Noise Fairness and Airport Growth. Each two-hour workshop will include a 30-minute presentation about the history of Toronto Pearson, the growth of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area, and our vision for the future. You will then be invited to join a series of facilitated small group discussions with other local residents and members of the new Residents' Reference Panel, and suggest ways to:

    • provide new transit options for the airport and region
    • manage and mitigate noise from aircraft
    • engage and inform residents about our operations
    • strengthen our commitment to the environment

    A summary of each meeting will be posted to our website and shared with members of our Residents’ Reference Panel, our Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee, and the GTAA board.

    We encourage you to register in advance to help us plan and to accommodate any specific requirements.

    The Workshops are being held across the GTA in communities that were chosen based on the impacts of airport operations. Residents of any neighbourhood are welcome to attend any or all the workshops.
