    Toronto Noise Mitigation Initiatives: the 6 Ideas

    Toronto Pearson is fast becoming one of the world’s leading airports. As we meet the demand for air travel, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and NAV CANADA are working to identify measures that address the issue of aircraft noise for local neighbourhoods.

    Starting March 2018, the GTAA and NAV CANADA are conducting public consultation on proposals that are aimed at reducing noise impacts for residents around the Greater Toronto Area. The proposals include: new flight paths for overnight flights, changes to the preferential runway system and a summer weekend runway alternation program.

    Join us at any of the upcoming events to learn more about what the proposed initiatives mean for your community, provide feedback, and speak to industry experts. Registration is recommended.

    Unable to attend one of the events listed below? Check back here for updated information about the new proposals and provide your feedback online.
