YUL Montreal-Trudeau International Airport - Construction of an industrial building to produce nonwoven fabric for surgical masks

True North Innovative Non-Woven Materials Inc. plans the construction of an industrial building on the north part of lot 5 599 104 located on the Chemin de l'Aviation at YUL Montreal-Trudeau International Airport. The building's ground surface area will be approximately 4,000 square meters, situated on a 15,500 square meter lot. The land is located on the site of an old golf course, now unused. No wetlands, waterways, sensitive species or habitats or protected zones are present on the site. For the Google localisation of the site, click here

The building will be used to produce nonwoven fabric for surgical mask manufacturing. The production process uses extruders and hot air to produce fine fibers. These fibers are randomly laid on a moving belt to produce the fabric which is then slit to width and wound in rolls suitable for use in mask manufacturing.

Latest update

Following the required analyses, the consultation process and planned mitigation measures, Aéroports de Montréal has determined that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. Mitigation measures will be put in place, notably for dust control, noise reduction and the protection of water environments during construction. In addition, sustainable development practices are also planned, such as greening the parking lots and installing a white roof. Finally, economic benefits are expected, such as the creation of quality jobs.  Consequently, Aéroports de Montréal can exercise its powers to allow the project to proceed. .
