Three energy-efficient airports built for the Northwest Territories
Three new energy-efficient airport terminals have replaced aging facilities in the Northwest Territories, improving transportation infrastructure and providing residents and visitors with a better travel experience.
Most of the year, the Sachs Harbour, Paulatuk and Tuktoyaktuk airports are the only means by which goods and supplies can reach these remote Arctic communities.
“These new airport terminals are vital to supporting the increasing growth and prosperity of Canada’s Northern communities,” Leona Aglukkaq, the Minister of Health, Regional Minister for the North and Member of Parliament for Nunavut in a news release.
The Government of Canada contributed $700,000 towards the construction of the Tuktoyaktuk Airport through the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund, with the Government of the Northwest Territories contributing the balance of the total project cost of $2.32 million.
The Government of Canada contributed $450,000 to both the Sachs Harbour and Paulatuk Airport terminals through the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund, part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan.
The Government of the Northwest Territories contributed the balance of the Sachs Harbour terminal’s $1.10 million total project cost and the Paulatuk airport’s $1.12 million total project cost.
