Community Environment & Noise Advisory Committee

 

As of December 2018, the Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee (CENAC) has been retired. The content on this page is intended for historical reference.

In 2019, we are launching the Toronto Pearson Noise Management Forums that provide a more inclusive approach to working with the community and industry in the interest of managing noise.

To learn more about the Noise Management Forums, please visit www.torontopearson.com/NMF.

Like many other airports, Toronto Pearson has a community forum; the Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee (CENAC). The committee provides a forum where the public can openly discuss and ask questions about environment and noise-related issues at Toronto Pearson.

The committee meets four or five times per year and is open to members of the public. The committee is comprised of elected representatives and residents from the Cities of Brampton, Mississauga, and Toronto, as well as the Regions of Halton, York, and Durham.

Learn more about CENAC's purpose, goals and responsibilities in our Terms of Reference. Any questions about CENAC, or environmental and noise issues, please email CENAC directly.

Noise Complaints

If you have a noise complaint, please let us know by completing our Noise Complaint Form.
