Our Planning Process

The Airport Authority has a five-tiered planning process to guide airport operations and development in the short, medium and long terms. The Strategic Plan provides the fundamental direction—the Mission, Vision and Values—for the organization.

The Master Plan looks forward 20 years to ensure the best allocation of YVR resources. The Master Plan process includes a significant public consultation program and evaluates potential airside, terminal, and ground access and parking development options based on comprehensive sustainability criteria that are divided into four areas: Governance, Economic, Environmental and Social.  Read more about the Airport Authority’s most recent Master Plan and accompanying Land Use Plan, YVR: Your Airport 2027 Master Plan.

The Capital and Financial Plans determine the funding and timing of airport infrastructure developments. The annual Business Plan outlines the Airport Authority’s objectives and initiatives for the coming year.
