A Porter Airlines de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-GLQB performing flight PD-2691 from Toronto City,ON to Sault Ste Marie,ON (Canada) with 48 passengers and 4 crew, landed on Sault Ste Marie's runway 12 at 22:21L (02:21Z Apr 17th) but overran the end of the runway and came to a stop on soft ground about 85 meters/280 feet past the end of the runway. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained minor if any damage.

The runway was closed and is still closed about 15 hours after landing.

The airport reported the aircraft went off the runway and came to rest at a grassy area. There were no injuries and no damage. The passengers were taken to the terminal with airport limousines.
