The Minister of Transport, the Honorable Omar Alghabra, announced that the Government of Canada is making important safety investments at the Windsor International Airport.
Through Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program, the Government of Canada is providing the airport with $180,000 for the purchase of a 4×2 plow truck to be used to remove and control snow and ice.
This investment is in addition to the more than $200,000 provided to the airport under the Program in May 2021, to purchase a loader.
This funding will ensure continued safe and reliable airport operations for residents, not only for personal and business travel, but also for access to routine and emergency medical care in larger centers.
“Local and regional airports like the Windsor International Airport are critical to the communities they serve, whether it be for staying connected with loved ones, or for accessing critical services,” said Minister Alghabra. “This investment will make a real difference for Windsor International Airport and ensure the communities that rely on it continue to be able to access safe and reliable air transportation options.”
