As the Airport Authority sets out on an ambitious Strategic Plan, it is paramount that YVR remain an economic generator, a jobs creator and a sustainable and fiscally responsible airport for British Columbia.
YVR’s community-based Board of Directors provides stewardship for the Airport Authority and seeks to foster the long-term success of the airport. The Board’s fundamental role is to ensure that the Airport Authority fulfills its role in a safe, efficient and reliable manner. Our Board reviews and approves the Strategic Plan, long-term financial plans and annual budgets. It also selects the 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. Our Board has adopted a Governance Rules and Practices Manual, available at yvr.ca, to assist Directors in meeting their obligations.
