Canadian North doubles down on Ottawa cargo facility with $22 million investment


Canadian North, the Arctic’s leading airline, has unveiled plans to double the size of its cargo facility in Ottawa.

This significant expansion is in direct response to the rapidly growing needs of our remote and northern communities.

Both Canadian North and the Government of Canada are committing $11 million each, totaling a $22 million investment. Construction is set to begin soon with the facility slated to be fully operational by 2026.

“When we talk about cargo, we’re talking about essentials and things that make a difference,” said Matieu Plamondon, Canadian North’s Vice President for Cargo & Airport Services.

“Our expanded Ottawa facility lets us do more for our Arctic communities. From high-quality, expedited grocery deliveries to timely arrivals of cherished packages, we’re committed to enhancing the product we offer.”

Serving as an integral gateway for Inuit communities, the new facility represents Canadian North’s commitment to expanding services in the Arctic.

By doubling its size, the new facility will unify various sites and use the latest tracking tools to ensure vital items like food and medication get delivered on time.

This bigger facility will help local businesses grow, meet the rising needs of online shopping, and make sure food supplies remain stable even as the weather changes.

“Our strategic expansion in Ottawa underscores Canadian North’s commitment to making life better in our remote and northern communities,” said Michael Rodyniuk, Canadian North’s CEO. “Beyond just delivering essentials, we’re investing in the future.”
