Why do airports in Canada start with Y? The U.S. National Weather Service initially established airport codes. Canada was allotted a “Y” for all airports associated with a weather office. Codes like YVR for Vancouver and YWG for Winnipeg make sense, but Canada's busiest airport, Toronto Pearson International Airport, inherited the intriguingYYZ.

Who owns the airport? Airports are locally owned and operated.All but one U.S. commercial airport are owned and operated by public entities, including local, regional or state authorities with the power to issue bonds to finance some of their capital needs.

Why is Toronto called YYZ? "Originally, the letter Y was dropped in front of the two-letter code that had been used for the location before World War Two. The code for the station in Malton, Ontario, was YZ, which is where Pearson sits today—henceYYZ.
