Jack Garland Airport Benefits from Airports Capital Assistance Program
February 3, 2022

Canadians rely on safe and well-maintained local and regional airports to support vibrant communities. These airports also support essential air services including community resupply, air ambulance, search and rescue, and forest fire response.

The Government of Canada, Through the Ministry of Transport’s Airports Capital Assistance Program (ACAP) is making important safety investments across Canada, including at the Jack Garland Airport, which will receive $4,428,421.00 for three different rehabilitation projects.

This funding is in addition to the investments announced under the program in May 2021, for 86 projects at 63 local and regional airports, including runway and taxiway repairs/rehabilitation, lighting enhancements, purchasing snow clearing equipment and firefighting vehicles and installing wildlife fencing.

Since the Airports Capital Assistance Program started in 1995, the Government of Canada has invested over   $1.2 billion for 1,215 projects at 199 airports across the country.

Well-maintained airports help ensure safe airport operations for aircraft, passengers and crews, and help protect costly airport safety assets, such as snow clearing equipment and aircraft rescue and firefighting vehicles.


“The Jack Garland Airport is an important hub for residents and businesses in this region. This investment will help ensure continued safe and reliable airport operations for residents in North Bay and the surrounding area, many of whom depend on their local airports not only for personal travel and community resupply, but also for access to routine and emergency medical care in larger centres.”
