Board of Directors
The Board of Directors oversees the business conduct and activities of the management team. The goal of the Board is to ensure we fulfill our objectives on an ongoing basis and operate in a safe, efficient and reliable manner.
YVR’s community-based Board of Directors provides stewardship for Vancouver Airport Authority and seeks to foster the long-term success of the airport. The Board’s fundamental responsibility is to ensure that Vancouver Airport Authority fulfills its role in a safe, efficient and sustainable manner. Our Board reviews and approves the Strategic Plan, long-term financial plans and annual budgets. It also selects the President & CEO, oversees senior management succession, identifies risks, maintains the integrity of internal controls, monitors health and safety management systems and ensures we have a comprehensive public Communications Policy. The Board follows the Board of Directors Governance Rules and Practice Manual, available at yvr.ca/boardmanual, which includes terms of reference, guidelines and policies.
YVR would like to extend a sincere thank you to George Cadman, who retired from YVR’s Board of Directors in 2017. We appreciate your exemplary service and wish you the best in the future!
