YZF Proposed Tax Increases

The Northern Air Transport Association and our membership oppose the proposed new taxes and tax increases at Yellowknife Airport (YZF).  This proposal will add $4M in new tax revenues before any money is available for airport improvements.

NATA's position is that lower cost air travel and cargo services are critical to economic growth and development in the North.  We have prepared the position papers and submissions below to better inform our operators and the public about this proposal and the economic impacts for the people and businesses of the NWT.
