    It's Official: ICAO headquarters to stay in Montreal
    Canadian Owners and Pilots Association
    Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, Jean-François Lisée, Quebec’s Minister of International Relations, La Francophonie and External Trade (and Minister Responsible for the Montréal Region), Montréal Mayor Michael Applebaum, and ICAO Secretary General Raymond Benjamin celebrated the signing of a new agreement to keep the headquarters of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Montréal.

    The Agreement sets out the terms between ICAO and Canada that will keep ICAO headquartered in Montréal for 20 years beyond 2016 (the year the current agreement expires). Montréal has been home to the ICAO since its inception in 1947. The Government of Canada takes its host country responsibilities seriously and is actively involved at ICAO to make sure Canada’s aviation interests and positions are represented on the international stage. All three governments have listened carefully to ICAO’s membership about their needs and about how, as hosts, we can best support the effectiveness of this organization. To that end, Canada is contributing $1.4 million to modernize ICAO conference facilities and to purchase additional security equipment ahead of this fall’s Assembly. The Government of Quebec, in addition to its 1994 agreement on the benefits and courtesy privileges to be extended to the Organization as long as it stays in Montréal, has also agreed to assume, until 2026, the administrative costs of the IACO premises devoted to the technical cooperation—a $15-million investment.

    Aging arctic airports isolating northerners
    Calgary Herald
    Pilots say Canada's Arctic airports are getting so old they are forcing air carriers to downgrade what are often the only links northern communities have to the outside world. And at a conference last week in Ottawa of the world's largest pilots union, the Air Line Pilots Association, delegates heard that proposed new federal regulations could make that situation even worse.
