Our People

Our team of talented employees takes pride in each success, whether it’s a new service, another satisfied customer or the continuation of a great program. In 2014, we had all of these and saw our employee count grow to 416.

Health and Safety

Health and safety are at the core of everything we do. We adhere to the highest health and safety standards and continuously work to improve our safety culture. In 2014, the Airport Authority had zero health and safety non-compliances.

Emergency Response Procedures

The safety of YVR’s customers and employees is our primary responsibility, during regular operations and in times of crisis. 

Respect and Equality

The Airport Authority strives to have a vibrant and diverse workforce. We comply with the Employment Equity Act to ensure fair employment practices across our organization and regularly identify areas for improvement through voluntary surveys, workshops and interviews.

Universal Access

The Airport Authority strives to offer a positive experience to all travellers when they visit our airport. Since 1992, YVR has focused on providing a welcoming and accessible experience through our terminal design and operations. 

First Nations Engagement

The Airport Authority is committed to bringing economic and social benefit to all people of British Columbia, including First Nations.

Connecting with Communities

We continued to build on our strong relationships with communities and businesses in 2014. Our community investment program includes four focus areas: First Nations, sustainability, accessibility and the greater YVR community.

Community Engagement

As part of our public consultation activities, each year we undertake a community survey, conducted and compiled by an external consultant. The survey explores overall impressions of the Airport Authority and the impact YVR has on the community.


We are committed to providing open, honest and timely information to our many audiences: travellers, the general public, the 24,000 people who work at YVR, business partners, industry associations, local communities, government, charities, First Nations and media.
