Living Wage Policy

Vancouver Airport Authority is a certified Living Wage Employer, which means we are committed to paying our employees at or above the designated living wage for Metro Vancouver. Companies which provide direct contracted services to the Airport Authority in support of operations and maintenance, such as janitorial, landscaping and traffic management, are also required to pay a living wage to their employees at the airport.   

Not only is this the right thing to do but it’s also the smart thing to do. Paying a living wage helps ensure no one is left behind in affording basic expenses, helps reduce financial stress and provides greater opportunity to participate in enriching experiences in communities.

So how does the living wage formula work? It’s designated by Living Wage for Families B.C. and is the hourly rate of pay at which a household (two adults, two children) can meet its basic expenses.
