In accordance with our lease with the federal government, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) is responsible for reducing noise for aircraft within a 10 nautical mile radius of the airport. To help us do this, we work with NAV Canada (air traffic control) and Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC).
Our Noise Management Office monitors noise and noise abatement procedures at Toronto Pearson. In addition to receiving, analyzing, and responding to complaints from the public, the GTAA reviews, recommends and implements changes to our noise policies.

The Enforcement Office takes preventive actions and recommends assessment of penalties for potential noise violations. Although noise management at the airport is the responsibility of the GTAA, enforcement of penalties is the job of Civil Aviation at Transport Canada.
Please note: Aircraft flying over Toronto Pearson, or beyond our 10 nautical mile range, are the responsibility of Transport Canada. For noise complaints beyond the 10 nautical miles of Toronto Pearson, contact Transport Canada at 1-800-305-2059.
