Join the conversation on proposed airspace changes in northern GTA

NAV CANADA and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority are committed to working with our neighbours to make sure that noise management remains a part of the conversation as the aviation industry recovers from the impacts of the global pandemic.

The Proposal

NAV CANADA, the country’s air navigation service provider, is proposing airspace enhancements around Toronto Pearson Airport. The proposed changes will introduce a new, modern arrival procedure at Toronto Pearson known as Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required (RNP AR) for two for two runway ends at Toronto Pearson.

RNP AR provides the opportunity to design shorter, more direct routes, enabling aircraft to turn towards the airport sooner. These procedures will support environmental sustainability efforts by significantly reducing greenhouse gases and the overflight of residential areas.

If implemented, some residents may observe changes to air traffic patterns. As a result, NAV CANADA is undertaking public consultation to ensure that communities and businesses have the opportunity to learn about and provide input to the proposed changes. 

Be part of the conversation!

NAV CANADA, in collaboration with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), want to hear from you.

The public consultation will run from November 1 until December 17, 2021.
