Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, announced on July 10, 2018, a $4,209,725 investment for the rehabilitation of the taxiways and apron at the Chisasibi Airport in Quebec.
The funding comes from Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program (ACAP).
Since the Program’s launch in 1995, the Government of Canada has invested more than $829.4 million for 927 projects at 185 airports across the country.
“The Chisasibi Airport is an important hub for residents and businesses in this region,” said Garneau.
“This project will help the airport ensure continued safe operation for passengers, flight crews, and employees, who rely on the airport as it supports the regional economy and its social development.
“The Government of Canada recognizes the important role played by Canada’s local airports in supporting jobs and tourism, enabling investment and facilitating trade. Our investments are helping airports increase safety and accessibility for residents and travellers, while supporting the continued growth of local and regional economies.”
