Aviation Infrastructure Funding

Government of British Columbia


The BC Air Access Program provides cost-sharing opportunities for infrastructure, environmental and in select cases, airport master plans – all of which must be at eligible, public-use facilities.

Examples of projects that are eligible for BCAAP funding:

  • Airside operating area projects such as those related to aprons and runways
  • Avionics such as hazard beacons and runway lighting
  • Air terminal building enhancements
  • Environmental projects such as the preparation of a greenhouse gas inventory (baselining)
  • Groundside projects such as parking facility enhancements
  • Airport master plans for small airports


To be eligible for B.C. Air Access Program (BCAAP) consideration, the applicant must:

  • Operate a public use air facility
  • Serve fewer than one (1) million passengers annually
  • Be the air facility operator (local government, non-profit operating society or contracted operator)


BCAAP is a cost-share program supporting the infrastructure and environmental needs of airports, heliports and water aerodromes. The percentage of funding that BCAAP provides varies based on a range of factors, including:

  • Project type:
    • Airside operating areas and avionics projects begin at 75% funding
    • Environmentally focused projects begin at 75% funding
    • Transitional projects begin at 60% funding
    • Groundside projects begin at 50% funding
