Notice of Determination

July 19, 2023 – ADM Aéroports de Montréal has determined that the project proposed for the permanent modification of Runway 10-28 to a taxiway at YUL Montréal-Trudeau International Airport is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects by applying the mitigation measures planned for the project.

This determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • Technically and economically feasible mitigation measures listed below;
  • Community knowledge;
  • Indigenous knowledge and impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples.

The mitigation measures considered for this determination are as follows:

Environmental noise and air quality

  • Maintain trucks and all machinery in good working order. 
  • Equip vehicles with a functional anti-pollution exhaust system. 
  • Shut off engines of gasoline-powered vehicles and equipment when not in use.
  • Use of dust suppressants on the road and unpaved work areas. 

Soil quality

  • Avoid storing contaminated materials directly on the ground.
  • Manage contaminated soils in accordance with applicable regulations.

Terrestrial fauna and avifauna

  • Carry out regular visual observations at the site.

Quality of life

  • Respect the speed limits as well as the permitted loads. 
  • Limit the movements of machinery to preferred routes within the intervention zone.
  • Inform users of the site of the work being carried out and its schedule. 

Accordingly, ADM Aéroports de Montréal may exercise its powers to enable the project to be carried out, in whole or in part.
