We are proud to connect people, communities and cultures at YVR. We value our cultural heritage in BC and share this with the world every day through housing one of the largest private collections of Northwest Coast indigenous art. To support indigenous artists, we fund scholarships and mentoring for emerging and mid-career artists through the YVR Art Foundation.
Since 2011, YVR’s food and financial donations to the Quest Outreach Society totaling over $564,000 have resulted in 41 metric tonnes of quality surplus food and products diverted from landfill sites and approximately 256 metric tonnes of greenhouse gas equivalents prevented from entering our atmosphere.
We’re proud to partner with the Vancouver Pride Society to further diversity and inclusion in British Columbia. In 2022, we added an incredibly vibrant Pride Installation to the Canada Line Walkway – a stunning and educational piece supporting a safe space for all of us to be our most authentic selves.
Providing accessible travel for all is a top priority at YVR. Just one example of our commitment to being a leader as an accessible airport is through partnerships with Pacific Autism Family Network and Canucks Autism Network, where we have created resources and training to build confidence and break down barriers for individuals and families traveling through YVR.

We're passionate about breaking down barriers and lifting others up by supporting BC-based organizations doing transformative work in our communities.
We strive for creating an inclusive community rich of culture, diversity and appreciation for art.
