Some people visualize Toronto Pearson as a wide expanse of runways, terminal buildings and roadways. Some see the enormous industry that has built up around the airport and wonder at all that concrete.
We see Etobicoke Creek and Spring Creek, winding their way along our western border. We know that approximately one third of Toronto Pearson’s lands are grasslands, agricultural and creek valleys. These creek valleys represent important linkages and refuge areas for wildlife in response to the development pressures in the Greater Toronto Area. We take extensive steps to protect these natural resources while continuing to meet the demands of a growing air travel industry. Our investment in the Partners in Project Green program helps to promote innovative collaboration with businesses in North America’s largest eco-business zone. We have recently unveiled the Toronto Pearson portion of the Etobicoke Creek Trail.
