Mock emergency exercise being held on May 27

As part of our annual commitment, we are holding a full-scale Emergency Exercise at Toronto Pearson. This exercise is a requirement by Transport Canada and it’s an important way to test the airport’s emergency response. 

This year’s scenario will involve a simulated plane crash, with approximately 400 members of the airport community, partners and volunteers playing the role of crew members and passengers. Other responders participating in the event include Peel Regional Police Peel Regional Paramedic Services, Toronto Paramedic Services and Mississauga Fire. 

As this is only an exercise, there’s no need to be concerned. But be aware of possible traffic disruptions between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. around the area of Derry Road west of Airport Road.
