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

    Community Consultation

     
    Thanks for your feedback on the Six Ideas. The results of consultation have been captured in a final engagement report.

    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.

    Each idea underwent technical analysis to determine the impacts and benefits for local communities, and the feasibility of implementing the initiative given the demand forecast for Toronto Pearson. Where possible, we looked for opportunities to minimize the total number of people impacted by aircraft noise.

    Your feedback throughout the spring 2018 consultation period helped us get one step closer to making Toronto Pearson an international leader in aviation noise management.
