The GTAA estimates the first phase of the new facility could be in place as early as the mid-2020s.

HOK is a leader in sustainable, high-performance design and has led major aviation and transportation projects at some of the world's most travelled international airports.

In its most recent draft Master Plan, the GTAA forecasts that Toronto Pearson will grow to handle as many as 85 million passengers annually by 2037 and the GTAA is beginning the planning of the new facility to support this growth.

The planning will incorporate a regional transit centre to support the region's need for better transit connectivity.

Toronto Pearson is uniquely able to connect the region, due to its location between three municipalities, four major highways and a number of planned and existing transit lines, and the Airport Employment Zone, the second largest employment zone in Canada.

The GTAA continues to work with all levels of government to advance plans on priority lines connecting into the proposed regional transit centre.
