Public Consultation on the Use of Jets at Billy Bishop Airport


On May 7, 8, 9 and 10, 2013, Toronto City Council asked  staff to undertake a review of a request from Porter Airlines to amend  the 1983 Tripartite Agreement between the City of Toronto, the Government of Canada, and the Toronto Port Authority (TPA) to permit the landing of commercial jets at BBTCA.

The City of Toronto is conducting a public consultation process on a request to permit jet airplanes at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA). The focus of the consultation is to assess how changes to the airport would impact the city, including the ongoing revitalization of the waterfront, and nearby communities on the water’s edge.
