The majority of Canada's national, regional and local airports are owned by either the federal, provincial or local government. In recent years, the responsibility for airport operations has been passing to private authorities under long-term lease agreements. These authorities have been instrumental in expanding, upgrading and modernizing Canada's airports to world-class standards.
