More squeaky wheels
from By Kevin Psutka, COPA president and CEO
I wrote an article in 2007
highlighting a new source of funding for airport infrastructure, the Building Canada Plan. Some readers took action and I was pleased to see that some airports received infrastructure funding from the fund to make improvements. I am pleased to report that as part of an expansion of this infrastructure program, now referred to as the "New Building Canada Plan," a significant additional source of funding is available for airports. In the previous plan, a certain amount of the Federal Gas Tax was available to communities to spend on certain projects. Now, local and regional airports are included.
