Our long-standing relationship with YVR

Case Studies
YVR’s Impact

Vancouver International Airport is a huge driver of economic activity, providing jobs, developing infrastructure and bringing people from all over the world to our great city, province and country. In 2016, YVR received the CAPA Centre for Aviation’s prestigious Airport of the Year Award and was voted Best Airport in North America for the seventh consecutive year in the Skytrax World Airport Awards.

 Our Work Together

Our long-standing relationship with YVR dates back to before 1992, at a time when we helped the Vancouver International Airport Transition Advisory Group negotiate the transfer of the airport’s management from Transport Canada to the present Vancouver Airport Authority.

Since then, we’ve provided business-oriented, practical legal service to YVR on large-scale developments and operations, providing the contracts, agreements and solutions that supported YVR’s:

  • Major land procurement and development
  • Parking facility expansion
  • Terminal growth
  • Duty-free establishment
  • Canada Post facility development
  • Air-cargo advancement
  • The McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport development
  • The Spirit of Haida Gwaii: The Jade Canoe sculpture commissioning

We are proud that our work has provided legal guidance in projects vital to the growth of YVR, which welcomed a record 22.3 million passengers in 2016 and connected those people to over 120 non-stop destinations around the globe. More information on YVR can be found at YVR.ca.
