About YVR

Vancouver Airport Authority is the not-for-profit organization that manages Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

We manage YVR like a private organization—receiving no government funding—and we are accountable to the region, through a Board of Directors appointed from the community whose focus is to ensure that YVR serves the best interests of the public. All profit generated at the airport is reinvested back into operations, maintenance and future projects.We are committed to creating an airport that British Columbia can be proud of: a premier global gateway, local economic generator and community contributor. 

The 2016 YVR Annual & Sustainability Report summarizes Vancouver Airport Authority’s activities and business results at Vancouver International Airport. It continues a tradition of transparency and accountability, which started in 1992 with the formation of the Vancouver Airport Authority, where we report on our activities through the four pillars of sustainability: Social, Economic, Environment and Governance. 

We believe that sustainability encompasses more than just management of the environment—it also reflects how we influence the world in which we live. As a community-based airport, this means that our decisions must take sustainability into account. We recognize that everything we do has an impact. And we recognize that everyone we serve has a stake in our success. 

YVR is our airport—your airport—and at this airport, Everyone Counts.
