Airport Advisory Committee on Environment

The WAA Airport Advisory Committee on Environment meets regularly to discuss environmental issues related to airport operations. It is comprised of community representatives and technical advisors. The purpose of the committee is to provide a direct consultation link between with airport and the community on environmental issues.

Committee members are recommended by local Federal, Provincial and Municipal representatives from the neighbourhoods adjacent to the airport. Technical advisors from NAV CANADA, Transport Canada, Department of National Defence (17 Wing), Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation and WAA also attend.
