As published via this BC Gov news release.
Regional air facilities that have vital services, such as wildfire suppression and medical evacuation (medevac) services, will get a boost through a new intake of the B.C. Air Access Program (BCAAP).
BCAAP is a cost-sharing program that provides funding to help communities, especially smaller ones, with important improvements to their aviation facilities. Airports, heliports and water aerodromes are invited to submit proposals for infrastructure upgrades through the BCAAP grant program.
Applications for the 2022-23 fiscal year will be accepted until Dec. 22, 2022.
B.C. has more than 300 public airports, heliports and water aerodromes, which play a significant role in connecting communities, supporting the economy and keeping people safe. B.C.’s airports handle 20% of Canada’s airport traffic and nearly 25% of all takeoffs and landings.
