Airport Mandate

The undertaking of the Corporation is restricted to the pursuit of the following aims: 

  • to undertake and promote the development of the Airport’s lands for which it is responsible for use as compatible with air transportation activities, and
  • to manage, operate and develop the Deer Lake Airport (the “Airport”), the premises of which will be leased to the Corporation by Her Majesty the Queen in right of Canada in a safe, secure, efficient and financially viable manner with reasonable airport user charges and equitable access to all carriers and
  • to expand transportation facilities and generate economic activity in ways which are compatible with air transportation activities.

As we developed the building blocks of the strategic plan, we regularly cross-referenced our mandate to ensure the outcomes we aim to achieve continue to be aligned with our core responsibilities for the region.
