The community-based Nanaimo Airport Commission is comprised of nine Directors. They are nominated by the City of Nanaimo, Regional District of Nanaimo, Town of Ladysmith, Cowichan Valley Regional District, and the Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce.
The Directors are responsible for the airport’s corporate mandate, its overall function and strategic direction.
The Nanaimo Airport Commission (NAC) was incorporated in August 1990 as a not-for profit authority under the Canada Corporations Act – Part II. In April 1992 the Commission assumed management and operation of the Nanaimo Airport under a 30year lease from the federal Ministry of Transport.
In December 1996 the Commission was granted fee simple title to the Nanaimo Airport lands through the National Airports Policy transfer initiative.
