    In January 2015, take-offs and landings at 113 Canadian airports without air traffic control towers reached a total of 33,221 movements. Six airports, each with more than 1,000 movements, accounted for 29% of the month's activity: Peterborough, Ontario (2,502 movements), Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador (2,000), Red Lake, Ontario (1,576), Comox, British Columbia (1,342), Pickle Lake, Ontario (1,236) and Barrie-Orillia-Lake Simcoe Regional, Ontario (1,031).

    Year-over-year comparisons were possible for 101 airports. In January 2015, these airports reported 31,867 movements, an increase of 2% from the previous year. A large gain at Peterborough (+1,030 movements) was sufficient to offset declines at Dryden Regional, Ontario (-281), Pickle Lake (-221), Déline, Northwest Territories (-198) and Red Lake (-189).

    During January 2015, there were 25,990 itinerant movements (flights from one airport to another) reported by 95 airports with Goose Bay (2,000 movements) recording the greatest number.

    Thirty-nine airports reported 5,251 local movements (flights that remain in the vicinity of the airport). Peterborough remained the most active site with 2,276 take-offs and landings, representing 43% of the total local movements reported.
