The Governments of Canada and Quebec will invest nearly $24.8 million into the expansion and upgrading of the Rouyn-Noranda Airport.
Located near the western border of Quebec, the City of Rouyn-Noranda is a main urban center north of Montreal (population almost 42,000) and the 18th largest city in the province. The City will provide nearly $12.4 million, bringing the total government and municipal investment to nearly $37.2 million.
The airport project involves the construction of a new two-floor terminal, tripling the surface area of the current building. Related work includes expanding the parking lot, redeveloping the access lanes, and refurbishing the airport’s water and sewer systems and electric power plant.
