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.

 

Results of 2020 Research on Floating Debris in the Toronto Harbour

With its second season now complete, the Seabin Program – managed by program partners PortsToronto and the University of Toronto Trash Team – has released 2020 results that confirm the important function the Seabins play both in capturing plastics and microplastics, as well as informing research on origination and approaches to elimination.
 
U of T Trash Team researchers report that over the 2020 season, between July and October, PortsToronto’s Seabins diverted an average of 85,000 small pieces of anthropogenic debris from Lake Ontario. Other than tiny trash, including microplastics (smaller than 5-millimetres), which are by far the most common items collected by the Seabins, other commonly found macroplastics include clear plastic packaging, hard plastic fragments from takeout containers or plastic packaging, and cigarette butts. 
 
During the course of this research season, the U of T Trash Team also discovered that vegetation collected by the Seabins has an important role to play in accumulating microplastics. While the Seabins are effective in capturing floating litter and debris as small as 2-millimetres, plant material collected in the bins acted as a magnet to capture tiny microplastics, such as pre-production plastic pellets, that might otherwise pass through the Seabin’s capture bag. On average this season, PortsToronto’s Seabins diverted more than 11,000 plastic pellets from Toronto’s harbour.
