Projects Funded

Since 2004, the Ottawa International Airport Authority has given more than $1,100,000 to support local charitable projects. Through Project Clear Skies, the Authority’s charitable giving program, we provide funding for capital expenditures to Ottawa-Gatineau charities. The community we serve has been instrumental in our success, so it’s only fitting that we return the gesture. Selected by Authority employees and members of the Board of Directors, these registered charities submit their application for funding for things such as equipment, major appliances, facility repairs, as well as technology and infrastructure improvements.
