By 2030, 60 million passengers per year are expected to travel through Toronto Pearson International Airport, the largest airport in Canada and the fastest growing in North America. To meet the demand, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) is undergoing a multi-project construction program to leverage the existing airport infrastructure through maximizing and optimizing airport capacity. As part of the development project, ADB Safegate’s Canadian office recently completed an extensive airfield project at the airport.
In recent years, Niagara District Airport (YCM) had experienced annual operational deficits of $100,000 to $150,000.

The commission concluded that the airport would need to make extensive infrastructure improvements to attract business and increase traffic.
