Air passenger traffic at Canadian airports increased 2.7 per cent in 2013, when there were a total of 122.4 million passengers, according to a Statistics Canada report released late last year.

Passenger traffic has gone up each year since 2009, when passenger traffic dropped.

But not all Canadian airports get the same amount of traffic. The November 2014 Statistics Canada report includes Canada’s top 50 airports, by passengers “enplaned and deplaned on selected services.”

While Statistics Canada excluded numbers for 14 of those airports, “to meet the confidentiality requirements of the Statistics Act,” you can see how the others compare to each other.
