Feds to fund Bishop Airport upgrades

TORONTO — The federal government has announced funding of $14 million to be allocated to PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, to support continued air services and transportation infrastructure projects as it recovers from the pandemic.

The airport will receive $10.9 million from Transport Canada’s Airport Critical Infrastructure Program to rehabilitate electrical infrastructure, purchase airfield support equipment, upgrade the airport security systems, rehabilitate the waterfront retaining walls, maintain airfield pavement and replace airport security fencing and gates, stated a recent release.

In addition to the funding for the infrastructure projects, the government also provide $3.1 million from Transport Canada’s Airport Relief Fund to help maintain continued airport operations.

“Investing in key infrastructure and climate action projects will ensure the airport is well positioned to support pandemic recovery in our region and continue to serve as an essential transportation gateway to Canada’s largest city,” stated Gene Cabral, executive vice-president with PortsToronto in a statement.
