On April 25, 2022, our President and CEO, Deborah Flint, welcomed The Honourable Omar Alghabra, Canada’s Minister of Transport, to Toronto Pearson for a ground-breaking ceremony to mark the Runway 06L/24R rehabilitation. Local elected officials, GTAA executives and representatives from Dufferin Construction and Avia NG were also on hand.

“This rehabilitation is about building essential infrastructure that is required for the economy of the region, the province and the nation,” said Ms. Flint. “A strong Pearson will support Canada’s recovery by enabling foreign direct investment, trade, tourism and critical goods movement.

“I thank Minister Alghabra and the Government of Canada for the Airport Critical Infrastructure Program, which partially funds this project, amongst others,” continued Ms. Flint. “Thank you for your support, which reflects just how vital Pearson is to keeping Canada moving.”
