Source: Up until 2015, Statistics Canada provided total aircraft movements. However, they no longer supply this information. Therefore, the Airport Authority now uses its own system to report aircraft movements. This system does not capture certain non-revenue generating aircraft movements that were included in the data provided by Statistics Canada for all previous years.
