Regional air transportation is crucial to local economic growth, the movement of goods and the connectivity of Canadians across the country. The pandemic has had a major impact on regional air transportation ecosystems, affecting communities and local businesses nationwide.

The Government of Canada’s Regional Air Transportation Initiative (RATI), launched in March 2021, supports access to air transportation and regional ecosystems. In particular, it enables the continuation of existing air routes and ensures airports in remote regions remain operational and able to contribute to regional economic growth, while adapting to new post-COVID-19 realities and requirements.

The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Indigenous Services and Minister responsible for FedNor, today announced more than $5.8 million in financial support for seven Northeastern Ontario airports. Of the total, the City of Timmins will receive $2,913,915, Earlton-Timiskaming Regional Airport Authority $1,222,812, Town of Kirkland Lake $900,000, Municipality of Wawa $332,264, Gore Bay Manitoulin Airport Commission $187,131, Town of Hearst $140,325, and the Town of Moosonee $90,000.

These non-repayable contributions will support nine initiatives that will help mitigate the financial pressures brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting airport operations, infrastructure enhancements and strategic planning. The projects are expected to help create or maintain 23 jobs and restore an additional five full-time positions in Northeastern Ontario.

Regional air transportation is key to the economic development of communities and businesses right across Canada. It is essential to connecting Canadians living in rural and remote communities to urban centres, delivering Canadian goods to the global market and welcoming international visitors to all parts of the country, when it is safe to do so.

“Regional air transportation ecosystems are critical for the thousands of workers employed by this sector and for the businesses and communities that depend on it. We know that air connectivity to all regions is essential to healthy, inclusive growth, and supporting it is part of our plan to build back a stronger, more resilient economy.”  

– The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Indigenous Services and Minister responsible for FedNor

“Airports support jobs and growth in all sectors of the economy by serving as transportation hubs for people, goods and services. I am pleased that today’s announcement will help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 at the Victor M. Power Airport, while supporting economic recovery and growth efforts here in the City of Timmins and across Northeastern Ontario.”

New Release from TCS: Take the Seven Day Anger Free Challenge

 In a new book released by Tuscawilla Creative Services, author Jacquelyn Lynn poses the question: What would your life be like if you were free from anger? In Seven Day Anger Free Challenge: Be the Peace, Lynn explains how being free from anger for just seven days can change your life forever.

“Before I could share the challenge, I had to do it myself – and the peace I felt during and after that first week was wonderful,” Lynn says. “It’s become a lifestyle for me. Accepting and completing the Seven Day Anger Free Challenge is life-changing—and could be world-changing.”

In the book, Lynn explains that anger is an intense emotion with a long list of negative impacts, including damage to physical and mental health, relationships, judgment, productivity, and more. It also drives dangerous and destructive behavior. Finally, the Bible is clear that God does not want us to be angry.

Lynn says the solution is not to control anger, it’s to avoid getting angry in the first place. Seven Day Anger Free Challenge: Be the Peace includes an implementation plan that will take the reader through the first week and beyond.

Available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

Canada – Seven regional airports across the Prairies receiving more than $8 million to maintain regional connectivity and jobs

Edmonton, Alberta – Prairies Economic Development Canada

Regional air transportation is crucial to local economic growth, the movement of goods and the connectivity of Canadians across the country. The pandemic has had major impacts on regional air transportation ecosystems, affecting communities and local businesses from coast to coast to coast.

The Government of Canada’s Regional Air Transportation Initiative (RATI), launched in March 2021, fosters access to air transportation and supports regional ecosystems. In particular, it enables regional air carriers and airports to remain operational in these difficult times and to continue contributing to regional economic growth, while adapting to new post-COVID-19 realities and requirements.

Prairie airports to benefit from funding
With this in mind, Terry Duguid, Parliamentary Secretary to the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, and Minister responsible for Prairies Economic Development Canada, announced up to $8,456,930 in RATI funding for seven regional airports in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. This funding will enable these airports to overcome challenges that were brought on by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Regional air transportation is key to the economic development of communities and businesses across Canada. Since it helps draw Canadians to rural and remote communities to work and raise their families, while also providing reliable connectivity with urban centres, it plays a crucial role in a just, inclusive recovery for all, throughout the country.
