2022-2024 Strategic Plan
YVR exists to serve our community and the economy that supports it.
In 2021, we recognized the changes in our industry and region as a result of COVID-19. We took a one-year view with our planning, setting the clear intention of using the opportunity to learn, test and adjust to the challenges presented by operating an airport through a global pandemic.
The pandemic and its impacts will continue to evolve and aviation will likely remain one of the industries hardest hit. We anticipate passenger traffic will likely not resemble the same shape or volume as pre-pandemic. We understand that our YVR team and airport community has ever-changing needs and expectations of the workplace. We know more people are seeking greener alternatives.
As we face this uncertain future, we also acknowledge the past. Our airport is located on land that is the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. As an important part of our community, the destinies of Musqueam and YVR are inter-linked.
Our 2022 – 2024 Strategic Plan builds on the learnings gained over the past 12 months and sets a course for the longer term. It is based on reconceptualizing and amplifying our role as a diversified hub that connects people, cargo, data, ideas and community. It’s also based on change, specifically changing how we approach our work.
Through to 2024, we will continue to advance the six strategic streams we established in 2021. As we do this, we will look through four lenses – digital, climate, financial sustainability and reconciliation – to understand impacts, make decisions and create opportunities that will help to amplify our influence so that we emerge from this pandemic as a greener, stronger, more diversified and sustainable business, ready to serve our community.
