Our airport connects passengers to their next adventure, people to jobs, investments to the region, and residents to transit. But, we’re more than just an airport; we’re your neighbour.
The airport reflects the community—if the communities around us are thriving, so are we. Our community outreach team works with partners in Brampton, Mississauga, and Etobicoke to engage with the community and build relationships. Check out some of the ways we work with our neighbours below.
Pearson Connects Virtual Coffee Chats
Our Pearson Connects Coffee Chats provide a unique look at what it takes to keep our airport operating safely every day. Meet with our team and subject matter experts to learn about the history of the airport and its economic impact, our operations and how we are giving back to local communities. To schedule a virtual coffee chat with us about one of the listed topics, please reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We seek out opportunities to connect with our neighbours at community events, where we can set up our interactive booth and chat about initiatives, while also giving away fun and educational materials about Pearson.
Please note: Attendance requests are available throughout the year, but community events requesting funding must be held between April and September.
We’re looking to set up a booth at community barbecues, farmers’ markets, small community events, and community centres to build relationships with our neighbours in intimate settings and share our work with the community.
Please note: Attendance requests are available throughout the year, but events requesting funding must be held between April and September.
We want to have a long-standing and positive impact on our surrounding communities and seek out ways to work with our neighbours to help achieve this goal. We support a variety of initiatives.
We’re currently no longer accepting applications for community partnerships. Please check back regularly for updated timelines.
Food bank SEVA Kitchen
We have partnered with SEVA Kitchen, a food bank that not only sits in our backyard but a resource that plays a vital role in supporting some of our neighbours.
Through this partnership, we are working to connect SEVA with our trade partners to help revitalize the food bank to ensure it can continue to meet the needs of the people it serves. As only one of two food banks in the city, we understand the importance SEVA plays in fostering wellbeing for those who access their services.
Oakville Community Foundation
We’ve partnered with the Oakville Community Foundation to support their Community Classroom program. So far, we’ve sponsored 3,500 elementary school students in Oakville, connecting them to free arts and culture curriculum. As students return to classrooms for another year of learning, we’re focused on helping our partner make that number grow even larger.
