Calgary Airport Authority recognized as top Alberta workplace

The Calgary Airport Authority has once again been recognized as a Top Employer by Mediacorp, which recognizes employers that are committed to creating a vibrant and rewarding work environment, the organization said.

This is the eighth time that the Authority has been acknowledged for creating a great workplace for the Authority employees (also known as the YYC Crew) who are focused on developing, maintaining, and operating YYC Calgary International Airport.

The Authority´s key employee offerings include: ongoing professional development, an employee-led engagement program, a robust benefits and pension program, meaningful student work opportunities, and a peer-to-peer recognition program. Additionally, Authority employees have the opportunity to participate in numerous volunteer and social initiatives such as lunchtime yoga, Calgary Corporate Challenge, and opportunities to volunteer at the Mustard Seed.

The Calgary Airport Authority is a not-for-profit, non-share capital organization responsible for the safe, secure and efficient management of the YYC Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Springbank Airport (YBW) under long-term lease from the Government of Canada.

The Authority has invested over CAD 4bn into the continued development of YYC, opening Canada´s longest runway in 2014 and a new International Terminal in 2016. YYC is a key economic driver for Calgary and Alberta, generating more than CAD 8bn in economic activity annually and creating 48,000 jobs.
