The Canadian Airports Council (CAC) is the voice for Canada’s airports. Formed in 1992, as the devolution of airports to local control was beginning, the CAC has established itself as the reliable and credible federal representative for airports on a wide range of significant issues and concerns.

Canada’s airports are engines for economic development in the communities they serve and one of their most important elements of local infrastructure: Their communities’ vital links to intra-provincial, national and international trade and commerce. CAC's 45 members represent more than 200 Canadian airports, including all of the National Airports System (NAS) airports and most passenger service airports in every province and territory.

Together, CAC members handle virtually all of the nation’s air cargo and international passenger traffic and 95% of domestic passenger traffic. The economic impact of CAC member airports is staggering. They create well in excess of USD45 billion in economic activity in the communities they serve. And more than 200,000 jobs are directly associated with CAC member airports, generating a payroll of more than $8 billion annually.

There is no doubt that air transportation is an economic growth enabler and airports are the essential link that connects communities and air travel. From safety and security to facilitation and infrastructure to economic issues, Canada’s airports speak with one voice through the CAC. That is why their organization’s vision is: Canada’s Airports: Working Together, Moving Forward.
