Government of Canada makes important investments at Nunavut airports

IQALUIT, NU, Oct. 18, 2022 /CNW/ - Northern communities across Canada depend on well-maintained airports to keep them connected. These airports also support essential air services including community resupply, air ambulance, search and rescue, and forest fire response.

The Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, today announced that the Government of Canada is making important safety investments at local and regional airports in Nunavut.

Through Transport Canada's Airports Capital Assistance Program, four airports in Nunavut will receive over $5.4 million for safety-related projects and equipment that will help maintain safe airport operations for passengers, crews and airport workers. The airports receiving funding are:

Cambridge Bay Airport

Clyde River Airport

Coral Harbour Airport

Whale Cove Airport

This funding is in addition to the more than $1.9 million announced under the Program in May 2021, to support safety-related projects at the Coral Harbour, Kimmirut, Pangnirtung and Rankin Inlet airports.


"With Canada being such a large country, our airports are critical to keeping communities connected, especially in our Northern communities and Territories. This investment in local and regional airports in Nunavut will ensure that residents across Nunavut continue to be able to see their loved ones and have access to essential air services. Our Government made a commitment to Canadians to build safer, healthier, and stronger communities as we rebuild from the pandemic, and through investments like these, that's exactly what we're doing." 

The Honourable Omar Alghabra
Minister of Transport
