Regional Air Transportation Initiative: Overview

From: Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada

The Regional Air Transportation Initiative (RATI) is a $206-million program that will provide support over two years to eligible regional businesses and airports that directly contribute to regional air transportation. The fund is designed to help ensure that regional air connectivity and services, which are critical to economic growth, are maintained and that regional routes are reconnected across the country. RATI is being delivered by Canada's six regional development agencies (RDA). The RATI complements other federal measures, in particular those that Transport Canada is implementing, to support the air transportation sector.
