    Growth at Toronto Pearson enables growth across Canada. Toronto Pearson has the opportunity to join a new tier of airports, enhancing passenger experience and stimulating the economy, if it can succeed in three key areas: 1. Regional transit network: Connect to Southern Ontario with a multi-modal hub; 2. Shorter wait times for passengers: increased funding for CATSA and CBSA; 3. International Passenger Supportive Policies: regulatory changes to support international passenger movement. Estimated economic benefits to the region. Global hub: 6.3% of Ontario GDP, 332,000 jobs, connected to 67% of global economies. Mega hub: 8.5% of Ontardio GDP, up to 700,000 jobs, connected to 80% of global economies.

    Growing Responsibly: The 2018-2022 Noise Management Action Plan

    Following a two-year process that included extensive community engagement, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) has created an updated the Noise Management Action Plan titled, Growing Responsibly: The 2018-2022 Noise Management Action Plan.

    The Action Plan outlines ten new commitments related to consultation, environmental responsibility, operational changes, monitoring and reporting aircraft noise, and industry collaboration that the GTAA commits to taking a leadership role in developing concrete action on.

    • An understanding that the proposed operations do not diverge from passenger or aircraft safety 
    • Possible improvements in guest or shipper convenience
