Original language of petition: English
The Edmonton Regional Airport is the property of the federal Crown, but it is leased to the Edmonton Regional Airports Authority. Although the Edmonton Regional Airports Authority is responsible for the management, operation and development of the Airport, any changes to the name of the Airport cannot be made without the Minister of Transport’s consent. In addition, in accordance with the Government of Canada’s Policy on Naming Government of Canada Structures, final approval of any change to the naming of an airport rests with the Minister of Public Services & Procurement.
Transport Canada’s policy is to name federally-owned airports after the principal geographic area the airport serves. However, under special circumstances, the name of an airport may be changed to honour a great Canadian.
Transport Canada has an established process for considering formal requests to rename an airport. This includes reviewing the merits and significance of the proposed name change.
This petition to rename the Airport will be reviewed by Transport Canada in accordance with this process.
