The airport is named in memory of Jack Garland, a longtime Member of Parliament for North Bay's Nipissing electoral district. Until 2004 it hosted an annual airshow during North Bay's Heritage Festival, with a large military component.

The airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA officers at this airport currently can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers.[1]

The Airport is home to the Canadore College's aviation campus which houses their aviation programs. Final assembly of the Bombardier 415 aircraft is completed at the airport, opened in 1999.

The airport houses CFB North Bay, which has operated from 1938 (as RCAF North Bay Station until 1966) to the present.[4]

The city has owned the airport since 1998 after transfer from Transport Canada and North Bay Jack Garland Airport Corporation has run it since 2003.[4]
