Advisories and Alerts

COVID-19 Information

The health and safety of employees and passengers is our top priority. 

PHAC and CBSA are the lead government agencies responding at Canada's airports and ports, and are the best source of up to date information on COVID-19.

Like all Canadian Ports, the Port of Toronto is closely following Transport Canada guidelines for keeping employees and the marine community safe while moving goods safely and efficiently through our port.

Billy Bishop Airport remains open and operational to ensure access for services such as Ornge emergency medevac. Porter Airlines and Air Canada have temporarily suspended commercial operations at Billy Bishop Airport in order to support the need to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 spread. Please check with the airlines to manage any travel arrangements currently booked for this time.

The complimentary shuttle bus between Billy Bishop Airport and Union Station has ceased operation until further notice. Signage has been put in place at all stops to advise passengers.

Until further notice, the airport ferry will reduce its operating hours. Updated hours are available here.

 

PortsToronto Presents Sixth-Annual Sustainability Report

We are proud to present our sixth-annual Sustainability Report, which offers a comprehensive look at our efforts in the past year with respect to our longstanding mission to protect Toronto’s waters, support our community and innovate for a sustainable future. 

In this report, for the first time, we have aligned our environmental initiatives with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN-SDGs). The UN-SDGs are 17 specific goals intended as a universal call to action to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The framework has been adopted by government bodies around the world including the Canadian federal government in its Federal Sustainable Development Strategy for Canada.

In this report, we have put our organization through its paces in identifying projects and initiatives that we are proud of as well as areas in which we need to improve in order to reach our future targets. We also acknowledge that the year 2020 looked much different than we had originally planned. However, thanks in no small part to the perseverance and grit of our team, we took the challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic in stride and did what we could to continue working toward our goals.

In 2020, PortsToronto continued to implement sustainable practices, support our community and the wellbeing of our employees, and invest in programs and infrastructure that protect the environment and grow Toronto’s economy.

Some of these initiatives include:
  • Converting Billy Bishop Airport’s Marilyn Bell I passenger/vehicle ferry to electric-power, which will significantly reduce noise associated with ferry operations and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 530 tonnes. This project is expected to be completed in 2021;
  • Completing the Billy Bishop Airport Cityside Modernization Project, an important component of the City of Toronto-led Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Plan which included the complete reconstruction of the Eireann Quay roadway and sidewalks, as well as climate resiliency measures including permeable paving to reduce storm water runoff and urban heat island effect;
  • Completing the build of a new space at the Port of Toronto tailored to the needs of the Works and Environmental Services team – an essential team that ensured the safe continuation of many of PortsToronto’s signature projects throughout 2020, including dredging, flood protection and wetland creation;
  • Continued to support leading research on plastic and microplastic pollution in our waterways, and incorporate the use of innovative trash-trapping technology in our harbour cleaning efforts as part of the PortsToronto Seabin Program; and,
  • Continuing to choose 100% green electricity from Bullfrog Power—the only port authority and airport in Canada to do so.

Structural Repair of Leslie Street Spit Floating Pedestrian Swing Bridge to be Completed May 14

The completion of structural repairs to the Leslie Street Spit floating pedestrian bridge will now be completed on May 14, 2021, with the bridge set to be re-installed in the days immediately following. The delay from the initial late-April timeframe is as a result of staff shortages in late February due to isolation and preventative protocols required due to potential COVID-19 infections within the team responsible for the repairs. Once the bridge is back in place, pedestrian access to the endikement roadway leading to the east headlands of the Leslie Street Spit will be reinstated.
