Development Opportunities

Potential Commercial Opportunities

The Airport has over 250 ha of land available (over 125 ha on existing Airport lands and 127 ha available through the expansion of the airport boundary) for development. There are five serviced lots (123m deep) for airside development available today as well as two groundside opportunities. Additional lands to the northeast provide both airside commercial and groundside commercial development. 

Expanded Aircraft Maintenance 

Opportunities include aircraft maintenance, aircraft painting and avionics repairs. 

Air Cargo / Warehousing 

The cargo and warehousing support (including building supplies) to the northern communities is a niche and potentially attractive market for growth. 

E-Commerce Logistics Centre 

E-commerce is promoting the development of better, faster, cheaper delivery of smaller

packages. The linkages between ground and air networks are becoming increasingly

integrated, often locating logistics centres directly on airports. The development of an ecommerce centre on Airport lands could provide dry goods and food parcels to the north and act as a distribution centre for catalogue shopping and web ordering from northern


Non-Aviation Commercial (Bigwood Lake) 

Lands available for various non-aviation functions including, hotel and conference centre,

education/institutional facility for use with other training programs offered to northern students for apprenticeship and/or coordinated with the regional training programs, storage and warehousing, retail.
