Runway 09 Approach Lighting – SSALR

The approach lighting for Runway 09, YYJ’s busiest, currently does not meet the requirements necessary to equal the performance of the instrument landing system (ILS) that serves that runway. While the ILS is certified for weather minimas down to ½ mile operational visibility the lighting is only certified down to ¾ mile visibility. This new installation will see the replacement of the existing lighting system with one that meets the requirements for ½ mile operations. The project will also see improvements to the dock and breakwater that supports seaplane operations and safety improvements for barges using the seaplane base for transporting large loads like houses and industrial machinery.

Work is planned to take place June through to year end and to be substantially complete in 2022.
