Aviation Infrastructure Funding
Thank you for your interest in the BC Air Access Program. The 2020/2021 application period is now open, and will close on January 13, 2020 at 11:59 pm.
The British Columbia Air Access Program (BCAAP) provides funding to assist B.C. aviation facilities, including airports, heliports and water aerodromes, to improve infrastructure and environmental performance. Through this cost-sharing program, facility operators can invest in safety, social improvements (such as improved medevac) and climate / environmental projects that help strengthen local, regional and provincial economies.
BCAAP encourages funding partnerships with Indigenous, local, regional and federal governments, as well as agencies and private-sector organizations.
This year, BCAAP has been improved to enhance consideration of climate/environmental projects. The application form has been updated to include a separate category for these projects. Climate projects can range from greenhouse gas (GHG) audits to equipment electrification, including charging stations; while environment projects can include mitigation works affecting run-off and operational projects such as recycling initiatives.
In addition, BCAAP has developed an easier process for bringing forward applications that were submitted but did not receive BCAAP funding in previous years (see Reconsideration Form below).
