Independent Toronto Airspace Review – Public Meeting Dates

Important Announcement

This is a notification from the Toronto Airspace Review – HELIOS – listing the next meeting dates about the Toronto Airspace Review by an independent consulting company – HELIOS.

This will be one of the last public meeting dates before a final publication (late June/early July) on HELIOS recommendations to NAV CANADA, to address airspace management issues creating noise impacts to residents of Toronto. At the meetings, presentations will be made regarding the mitigation options, however more ideas are welcome as the report has not been finalised. Attendees will have this opportunity to identify and discuss more options during these public meetings.

The dates and venues for the public meetings in March are open to all residents; you may attend any of the meetings, regardless of where you live. The Saturday morning meeting is also an option for residents who are unable to attend the evening sessions in Mississauga or Oakville.
