Regional Air Transportation Initiative in Western Canada

The Regional Air Transportation Initiative (RATI) aims to help regional air transportation ecosystems affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19. This support will enable the air transportation system in Western Canada to remain operational through these difficult times and continue to support the economic growth of our regions.

This national initiative has a total budget of $206 million over 2 years. It is being delivered by Canada’s 6 regional development agencies (RDAs). The RATI is in addition to the measures in Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan and complements measures implemented by Transport Canada to support the air transportation sector.

The objective of the initiative is to contribute to the economic development of a community through the maintenance, restoration or addition of regional air service, and the increase in air passenger volumes.
