Recognized as one of BC's Top Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why Vancouver Airport Authority was selected as one of BC's Top Employers (2016):

  • Vancouver Airport Authority reaches out to the next generation of employees with summer employment opportunities and in-house apprenticeship training programs -- and invests in continued skills development through a range of in-house and online training programs, career planning services, and generous tuition subsidies for courses taken at outside institutions
  • Vancouver Airport Authority supports its new mothers with maternity leave top-up payments (to 93% of salary for 17 weeks) and also offers employees the opportunity to extend time away into an unpaid leave of absence--employees additionally have access to subsidies for in-vitro fertilization (IVF) as required, depending on employee group
  • Vancouver Airport Authority encourages employees to keep fit with free memberships to an onsite fitness facility that features instructor-led classes, including boot-camp and yoga -- and the Authority encourages employees to leave the car at home with transit subsidies (with an LRT station at the airport), a carpool sign-up system and secure bicycle parking for those looking to get a little exercise on their commute
