Funding announced for Quebec airport expansion

The governments of Quebec and Canada have agreed to contribute nearly CA$24.8m towards the expansion and upgrading of Rouyn-Norada Airport in Quebec.

The City of Rouyn-Noranda will also provide nearly CA$12.4m, bringing the total government and municipal investment in the major regional airport to nearly CA$37.2m.

The project primarily involves the construction of a new two-floor terminal, tripling the surface area of the current building. Related work includes expanding the parking lot, redeveloping the access lanes, and refurbishing the airport's water and sewer systems and electric power plant.

When finished, this project will help address an anticipated increase in the number of passengers using airport. The additional space will improve the efficiency and capacity of the airport.

"This is much more than just a terminal expansion project,” said mayor of Rouyn-Noranda Mario Provencher. “This support from both levels of government demonstrates their recognition of the importance of the Rouyn-Noranda Regional Airport, which remains first in its category for passenger movements throughout Québec with more than 150,000 users per year."
