Construction projects on airport lands must follow the facility permit process. This includes the alteration of existing structures. The permit process applies to construction by both third parties and YVR.
A Facility Permit Application must be completed for construction that makes changes to airport facilities. This includes work within leased buildings. For more information see Facility Permit Guidelines.
New Facility Permit Alterations at the airport must be designed under the 2010 edition of the National Building Code of Canada. Effective April 1, 2017 all new permit applications must be designed under the 2015 National Building Code of Canada.
